Description

Watergate Rock is the larger of the two formations and hosts a nice collection of slab and thin face routes on it's smoother quartz monzonite.

The Deja Vu Pinnacle, actually a part of Watergate Rock, is a free-standing summit that has no easy way to the top and well worth a visit.

Routes in the area range from 5.6 to 5.11+ with a focus on thin face and slab climbing with a few gear routes to balance out things.

Getting There

Approach as for the main Comic Book formation, but veer off right following a marked trail to the obvious formation. The hike takes about 15-20 minutes from the car.
