Description

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

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.
