Description

Winter Climbing. I have never been here. My information is coming from the old Ron Anderson Guide, circa 1991. This place is not included in the new Falcon Guide Book, so I figured put it on Mountain Project and try to get some beta flowing.

From what I can tell, there are two separate distinct towers. One is a little higher up the hill and to the west of the lower one. I have marked their location on the map to left as to were I think they are.

If you have any info on this place, please post.

Getting There

Once you turn off of Pyramid Hwy, set the trip meter. At 0.2 miles, stay right. At 0.7 miles, stay left. At 1.5 miles, head left. If you go straight, you will go to Pig Rock. If you go right, I don't know were you will end up. Keep going on the road, staying right. At the 2.7 mile marker you park the car.

If anyone has the correct map coordinates for this crag, that would be helpful. As the other comment on the photo here notes, there is some confusion on how to get here. May 7, 2018
