Description

One of many chossy piles in the area, this formation sports an alcove on the north face that has two surprisingly good faces of rock with very different characteristics. Facing north is a tall (for the area) face of crenulated, steep, lichen covered granite with hundreds of small hidden holds (hidden by lichen) and split by a seam that takes nuts well and runs most of the length of the face. One route has been established on this 40-45 foot face, and two or three more quality face climbs can probably be eked out of it.

Making a west-facing corner with this face is an exciting but short (maybe 30 feet) face of solid, thin, dished plates on a vertical-to-overhanging face of very chossy rock. One route exists on this face, though there are many minor variations possible.

Getting There

Follow a faint trail from Count Chossula down and west for maybe 100 yards, under "the Schnoz," an obvious feature shaped like a giant nose, complete with a pair of nostrils. Continuing along and down will bring you below the climbs.

If you look at where I placed this on the map, you can actually see the shady corner described in the description above.
