Description

Several quality routes of "moderate" difficulty (5.8 to 5.11-) ascend this prominent formation.

Getting There

South Rock is the first rock encountered walking north from the parking area.

Descent

You can rappel down either the north or the south side rappels with a single 60m rope (~28m rappel for either way).
A nasty walkoff/downclimb exists on the east end of the rock (don't do it).
