Description Suggest change

A large fin of rock that juts out of the hillside. It has a broken up south face that looks like it would have some routes on it if someone was to do a lot of cleaning. The routes I know of are on the narrow west face just before you reach the north face and on the north face. The rock is generally good but not bullet hard as a rule. You will occasionally find some funk somewhere on the climbs but the big stuff is usually solid. There are a few trad routes, some old aid routes that may or may not reach the top and a bunch of sport routes. The north face is shady and can be climbed most of the year.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at the hairpin and hike up the drainage until it makes a big right hand turn. and you find yourself right below a large wall.
