Description

The Tusk is a prominent 50' tower of good quality rock sitting atop a rubble pile just inside the Park entrance. Despite it's small size there are lots of routes on the formation and a good half day can be had here close to the car. Be aware that the exposed nature of the formation makes this a poor choice if windy. Despite the all-bolted nature of the climbs there are no fixed anchors. An easy downclimb off the northeast side is the descent.

Getting There

Park in a large pullout with an exhibit 0.5 miles south of the Park entrance and hike 200 meters to the formation which sits atop a small rubble pile; the easiest path through the boulders at the base is by heading for the southwest corner of the formation. Allow 5 minutes for this casual approach.
