Description

This formation, with three distinct summits, is located in the southern section of the Wonderland of Rocks, on the eastern side of the Wonderland Valley. It lies east and a bit north of the Astro Domes, and faces the impressive eastern faces of the Astro Domes.

Named after the Fantastic Furry Freak Brothers "underground" comics (there were three Freak Brothers).

Several fun friction routes are located here. The classic line without a doubt being I Can't Believe It's A Girdle (5.9/10a). Also, worthy of note is Girdle Crossing (5.10d) and the rarely done high angle friction route, The Sound of One Hand Slapping (5.11c).

Getting There

The formation is easily reached by parking in the Wonderland backcountry (dirt) parking area, located off the dirt Big Horn Pass Road road (about 0.1+ mile past the paved Barker Dam parking lot). Hike out the Wonderland Valley Wash. Where the Wash/Valley widens, stay straight ahead. After about 600 yards, the formation will be seen on your right.
