Description [Suggest Change]
Rising above slabs that guard the approach is this fairly tall and impressive face with but a handful of routes including the rarely done Boom Boom Room (5.9 R) an old route which climbs to the summit of the formation via runout friction, Nuts and Bolts (5.9 R) a well-protected arete until it joins Boom Boom Room for it's thrilling finish and More Hustle Than Muscle (5.8) a thin to hand crack over a roof.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Approach as for Saddle Rocks then head right and uphill along the rocky hillside skirting the rocks on your left. A bit of easy boulder hopping leads to the base. The approach takes 25-40 minutes from the nearest parking.
