Description

In Randys guide the routes have no stars on them. But regardless there are quite a few nice lines to climb. Both bolted routes and trad. In the morning, summer, it's in the shade. The rock is good, not too hard on the hands. No access issues that I am aware of. There is an owl living in the area. But not on this formation.

Getting There

This rock is located in the Sheep Pass Group Campground area. Approach by boulder hoping up the gully behind Campground #2; it's just over the notch at the top of the gully, on your left side.

This is a really fun wall. The location, routes, and top out are all awesome. We were there on a Saturday in October and had the entire wall to ourselves. Check it out. Oct 18, 2014
