Description Suggest change

This rock is just past the green gate, on the north side of the creek, where the canyon narrows. The face has a chimney with an obvious crack to the right. The approach is easy and it offers a few good routes both trad and sport. All routes allow for a single rope rappel or walk off.

Getting There Suggest change

About a hundred or so feet past the second, green Rock Canyon gate look for a couple of logs crossing the stream bed at some concrete structures. If the water is running cross here; if no water (most of the year) go another fifty feet or so and cross the stream bed. You'll see a clearing ahead of you with an obvious trail leading north on the far side of the clearing. Take this trail which then turns right and deposits you at The Appendage.

Walk east past The Appendage and pick up the
across the talus just east of the The Appendage. Follow this trail to the base of P.A.'s Mother.

Note that the trail from The Appendage to P.A.'s Mother is new as of May 2007; use it rather than the old, nasty slog up the talus directly below P.A.'s Mother.
