Description

Directly across from Kid Rock and The Saddlehorn is this blocky formation which houses three challenging routes on it's shady and overhung north face - Money for Nothing (5.12a) climbs the thin crack up the center of the face, Chicks for Free (5.12b) is on the left arete and Red Hot Fire Balls (5.11c TR) is on the right side of the face and a single route on it's south face - Raker Mobile (5.4) which climbs an easy crack and is the easiest way up and down the formation.

Getting There

Approach as for The Saddlehorn and head up through boulders to the base or, better yet, circle around to the south and work along the east end of the formation where an easy scramble will deposit you at the base.
