About 200 feet wide, in three sectors of single-pitch.
Overall facing NNW.
Just as we recognize the June Lake Loop as a little visit to Switzerland, so we see the rock of Rush as a taste of Swiss granite.
"Grimsel" valley is the famous granite area in the center of Switzerland.
warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
Hiking time total 17-32 minutes from pull-out Parking via log bridge)
Or at times of low water flow in Rush Creek, consider the "Wading / hiking approach" described further down on the Rush area description page. But instead of going up all way to sector 1 Farquhar, turn Left (North) earlier lower at (N37.8138 W119.1086) onto a nice trail (before reaching a step to the right through a small notch to a sawed-off power pole).
(total 12-25 minutes from near Overlook parking).
