This is the namesake rock for this area. This rock is steep on all sides, and provides many hard routes from 5.9 to 5.13. The most popular routes on this rock are Baba Cool (5.9+) and Meat is Murder (5.11).
Follow the trail up the hill from the parking lot. Wrinkled Rock is on the right, and Chopping Block is on the left. First encounter a steep bolted line called Tender Vittles, but continue uphill for the rest of the routes. Go around the corner to the left when possible and look for two faces with a large dihedral in between. This is where the bulk of the climbing is.
