Description

This is a small crag about 80 foot tall lying about 400 feet SE of Gollum's Arch Rock. It has a handful of routes, at least two of which are pleasant. While certainly not a destination crag, it can be combined with routes on Twin Owls, Gollum's Arch Rock, and/or Rocks One through Six for a pleasant outing of short routing. The NW & SW faces hold the routes.

Descend the crag by scrambling down to the SE & circling back uphill to your packs.

Getting There

From the new parking lot, you can take either trail to approach this crag as it makes basically a circle with the parking area being ~6 o'clock & this crag being ~12 o'clock. Either approach is ~1 mile. If you go west from the parking lot, you will need to head northeast after ~0.6 miles. Then, follow the trail that wanders up north between Twin Owls & Gollum's Arch. Hen & Chickens where the trail goes off to Gollum's Arch Rock. Where the trail starts uphill on log-reinforced steps, continue contouring about 200 yards to the triangular appearing rock. Do not mistake it for a small crag with water grooves on its W face (lying immediately SE of Gollum's Arch Rock) with a mixed line with 3 bolts on its S face. If you approach from the right (north) trail, head west when you T into the Gem Lake trail junction. From the new parking lot, take the west trail towards the old Twin Owls parking lot ~0.6 miles. Expect about 20-25 minutes.

You can (less ideal) ascend worn, switchbacked social trails from below the crag perhaps 100 yards E of Upper Twin Owls/Gollum's Arch Rock.
