Description Suggest change

High in the woods west of the Quarry, this is probably the best known outcrop in the area, largely because the American Dream Roof is such an unusual problem for the Lake. There are several other nice, moderate routes around the corner to the left. However the descriptions given in Swarting veer toward the contrived (i.e. "avoid using the lower right corner"), which I find aesthetically unsatisfying (I guess I'm more of a mountaineer than a boulderer). If you are willing to ignore the rules, there are at least 4-5 fun routes here.

Getting There Suggest change

The easiest approach is possibly to hike up from the group camp area. See the notes to the West of the Quarry section. However, the most common approach is to up the CCC trail, head back into the woods to the East Bluff Woods trail, and hike east through a gap and up to the next hilltop. See the beta photo for where to dive into the woods.
