Description

It can be sunny and windy.
Crowded? No.
Secluded? Yes!
Ingraham mentions this area in the approach to the Wedge. It's south facing and the rock quality is kind of chossy but it doesn't appear to ever get climbed, like a lot of the Organs routes. There are probably several other routes to be climbed on this small formation.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

Approach as going to the Wedge, via Modoc Mine road and the Tooth trail. Once you reach the saddle, one can see the Gendarmes to the North. The approach takes about 1.5-2 hours.
