DescriptionOn the east side of the Drilling Fields is a quiet spot with great views across the Circle Creek Drainage. The approach is just long enough to keep out the rif raf, with a nice flat slab in an alcove for kicking back in.
It can make for a very pleasant outing in the afternoon to beat the crowds and the sun. The rock does not see much traffic, and is gritty with bands of moss at the top, but if friction is your thing, it is worth a look.
Getting ThereApproach as for the drilling Fields: Past Morning Glory Spire and down past the trail to Redtail. Continue on past the Drilling Fields West side, following the trail, then cairns up onto the rock and past a quick 4th class move. More cairns lead down and to the left, meandering up and around to the alcove and the climbing. ABove the alcove are two climbs, and further to the North are two more friction routes.
