The rock is a quartzite blend. There are a lot of great in-cuts throughout all of the climbing.
The last 1.5 miles is easier with a high clearance vehicle, although I have seen sedans and vans make it up, it is easier with high clearance.
Camping is available at the TH. You can also camp at Rock Lake.
The approach is about 3-4 hours. Follow Rock Lake Trail four miles to rock lake. You will cross rock creek multiple times, so no need to load up on water until you get to the lake. The lake is your LAST SOURCE OF WATER before getting on the climb. There will sometimes be an occasional stream in the gully you hike up.
Next, look to the east and find the gully that breaks up the rocky bluffs. Use the scree field to gain this gully. I recommend staying out of the gully until the scree field forces you in. Continue up the gully until you reach the base of a rock wall. There will be some occasional 4th class through the gully.
When you get to the base of the wall out of the gully. Stay at the base and head north until you get to the obvious dihedral that begins most routes. The decent is going to be from the north side and will come back to the base. Stash your pack accordingly.
Scramble down the north ridge. You will find a faint trail. Continue on the route until it drops off onto the west side of the ridge and curves back to where you started. Some of this descent may require some spotting.
