Description

Nook is a nice shady rock quiet and secluded, all things rare on Flagstaff. The rock is a dark grey with pebbles and incuts. A really fun traverse exists on the less then vertical wall. The side facing town has a flaky overhung low traverse. You can use a crashpad, but you don't really need one. There are some bolts on the top if for some reason you chose to TR it.

Per Colin Lantz & Rodger Raubach: this rock is named after Layton "Nook" Kor. "Nook" is a nickname for him.

Getting There

Park at the Capstan. Cross the road like your heading towards Cloud shadow. Walk uphill along the gaurd rail past the downhill for Cloud shadow about ten feet more and follow the very loose trail downhill to the rock. Watch out for some broken glass on the trail as it's loose.
