Description

This is the looming block just left of the Bluffs, separated by a steep vegetated gully. Along with the Bard Buttress, Tiger Wall, and Watchtower Faces, it is one of the most iconic pieces of rock in the park. Several classic multi-pitches wander up its slabby, jug-covered faces, which also pass through some more exciting features such as roof cracks and spelunking chimneys. Be prepared to stand in line on a perfect April morning, or pick a spicier line and bypass all the flailing kiddies on Eskimo Nell!
