Description [Edit]

Shakespeare Rock is the obvious North facing rock above Highway 50 and Glenbrook. The rock is andesite and can be loose.
The name comes from a likeness of Shakespeare scraped into lichen. It is also known as Glenbrook Rock.
A few routes were done here in the 1970s. In 1987 Jay Smith, Paul Crawford, Dan Osman and others began further development, at the Heavy Metal Wall, which is inside a Roofless Cave, known as "The Eye of the Hurricane". Routes have also been done on the outside face.

Getting There [Edit]

This rock is between Cave Rock and Spooner Summit above Glenbrook. Park below the rock at a dirt service road. Walk up the road a ways then scramble up to the base of the rock.
