Description

This 20-25 foot high formation has three cracks, a couple bits on the left, & that's about it. The possibility for some short face routes exists. It is south-facing & warm.

The rock is of moderate to good quality, though there is a lot of dirt, pebbles, and general organic matter on the top-out / anchoring area. Watch out for cacti.

There is lots of road noise.

There are no bolts, so prepare to trad or TR with built anchors.

Getting There

Drive 2/10 of a mile past Boulder Falls (~7.8 miles into the canyon). There is a large pullout on the right.

Old mining debris (wooden items & rusted iron rails) are scattered about. The face is also characterized by some red painted shapes and a "G" on the right side (near the walk-up)

Belay from the car.
