DescriptionIncredible granite plug on a ridge top. Beautiful climbs up dikes and cracks.
Getting ThereDirections (provided by Tad Hocking):
From Hwy 395 about 12 mi. south of Susanville, head SW up Janesville Grade Road for 4.7 mi. Turn right on dirt road towards Thompson Peak lookout. Follow that road 1.9 miles, then turn right and follow that dirt road to a gravel quarry area about 1.5 miles. Head to the south side of the quarry and you should see the rock.
Addendum: (Added by Muscrat 6/15)
This is a really tough spot to find. Google Earth has it at 40º15'13.50" N and 120º32'04.17"W. The turn off is at 40º 14' 22.07" N and 120º 31' 23.98" W. If you get to the fire lookout, turn around, you done gone too far! Keep an eye out to the east on the way back down, you can see it when the road crests from the west side back to the east side. DO NOT DRIVE DOWN THE LAST 150' OF ROAD WHEN YOU ARE AT THE CRAG. The sandy hill is difficult even w/4wd. You have been warned!
