Description

While not at tall or sunny as the popular south face of the formation the north face offers a handful of routes in the 5.10 to 5.11 range for the adventurous climber. Highlights here include the technical thin crack of Take It For Granite (5.10c) and Silver Lining (5.11c) with it's thin face climbing on excellent rock.

Getting There

Drive east past Echo Tee for about 0.5 miles along the Bighorn Pass Road, as if heading to Barker Dam, and park in any of several turnouts. From here a marked trail heads south along the edge of the hillside to the formation. Plan on 10-20 minutes approach depending upon your hiking speed.
