DescriptionOne of the more obscure formations at the Lake - I've only met one person who has climbed here besides me and Burt! Lost in that nether area above the Quarry, the rock has an usual number of vugs lined with well-formed quartz crystals.
Mentioned in a throw-away line in the Swartling & Mayer guide.
We explored 5 routes, 5.4 to 5.10. There is at least one hard route on the west face of this formation, crying out for someone to unlock it.
Getting ThereThe easiest approach currently would be to hike up from the bottom. Park at the lower end of the Quarry, then hike up to Aladdin's Castle, then hike west (toward the Lake), staying on contour. (Keep in mind that the Quarry itself is closed to all public access.)
It is also possible to come in from above. Hike until you are just east of the Quarry headwall, then drop down. When the peregrines are nesting in the Quarry (Feb - June), you can do them a favor and come up from below, rather than upsetting them by using this approach.
