DescriptionThis tall, semi-hidden face sits just outside the perimeter of the campground proper which makes it easily accessible and also gives it a surprsingly secluded feel.
Of the half-dozen or so routes here most are cracks with the odd face route thrown in. Ratings range from 5.6 to 5.11c, although the majority are 5.10a and under; Straight Flush (5.8) and Strawberry Jam (5.9) are two of the best here.
Descent from the formation is made from a bolted anchor (70' rap) atop the Northwest Chimney (5.4 R) route which is found on the west face of the formation.
Getting ThereWalk to the northern apex of the front campground loop (passing the route Hands Off) and then cut east along the south side of Outhouse Rock through a rocky "notch" which has some remnants of old fencing visible. Make a left (heading north) and you're there. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the bulletin board in Hidden Valley CG.
