Description

This is a tiny chunk of rock which apparently has seen climber activity evidenced by old slings. It's probably not going to get folks too excited, so any potential whiners should stay away. However, it's been climbed, and dredging up more history might be interesting. On a cold day, this crag can be tucked in and sunny for a late morning/early afternoon.

Its east side is short & blocky but steeper. Its south side is low angle.

After leading my wife up Ashley's Roof in July 2011, we found a few short, recently bolted routes on the upper SW side of the rock. If you descend to climber's left from the very top, start scrambling down toward the road. The bolted routes are high, on skier's left. I TRed two and had to hang my way up each, which felt at least 5.11. Dec 31, 2012
