Description

This rock is on the north side of Fern Canyon, immediately north of Pellaea. Pellaea and Onoclea appear to be the same rock from many vantage points.
Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details

Getting There

Leave the Fern Canyon trail in the same place as the approach to Pellaea (at present there is a wildlife closure sign and large mass of branches blocking the way where you turn off). Head up the easy gully east of Pellaea about scramble up this gully about 300 feet (watch for poison ivy).

Some guidebooks describe this as 4 pitches.With a 50M rope it is no more than three pitches, two short and one long. It goes nicely in 2 long pitches with a 60M rope.

Carry your boots on this one. The pine-needle-carpeted descent route is no fun in rock shoes. Aug 15, 2002
As George pointed out elsewhere... Like Pellaea, this odd word is also a species of fern. Sep 4, 2001
