Description [Suggest Change]

This is Seal Rock's little sidekick. The Penguin lives just South of Seal Rock and is pretty much dwarfed by it. You can barely see The Penguin from anywhere except down in town. It is obscured for most of the approach and even from the base it hides in the trees.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Follow the approach for Seal Rock. When you reach the bottom of the East face, hang a left and follow a steep trail in front of The Pup toward the left side of Seal Rock. When you find the start to East Face South Side, the Penguin is a couple hundred feet straight south. But due to lots of deadfall, it is easier to step around the East side of a small buttress to get to the base.
