Description [Suggest Change]

The centerpiece of the area, this large formation has a decent number of quality routes on both the shorter north face as well as it's 250' southwest face where several multi-pitch routes can be found.

Popular routes here include Comic Book (5.10a), Full Frontal Nudity (5.10a) and Frontal Lobotomy (5.10a).

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Drive east past Echo Tee for about 0.5 miles along the Bighorn Pass Road, as if heading to Barker Dam, and park in any of several turnouts. From here a marked trail heads south along the edge of the hillside to the formation. Plan on 10-20 minutes approach depending upon your hiking speed.
