DescriptionHairpin Rock is due east of the Left Hand Wall and features some nice moderate routes of both trad and sport variety. The easiest approach is to hike past both the Right Hand Wall and Hairpin Rock staying in the wash. At Hairpin Rock turn right (east) and hike along the north face gaining elevation. Climb through a small chimney to reach the majority of the climbs.
If you try from the east side you'll need to do some class IV scrambling. Be aware of loose rock in the area.
