Description Suggest change

Cliff to the (climbers) right of Granite Mountain’s main cliff. Looks like a molar. Not affected by seasonal closures.  Not much recorded information on this crag, although there has been some development/exploration in the past. If anyone has any more info on this area, give me a shout.

Although small, the rock Is excellent- as good as anything at the Mtn. Not many established climbs and it is very rarely visited due to the serious Shwacking approach.

However, there are some worthy gems, including an incredible dihedral project. 

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for GM, but continue to the right side of the main cliff, then up the gully to the ridge, and then follow the boulders and thick brush along the ridge to the Molar. 2-3 hours from parking lot depending on how many prickly pears you get stuck with.
If abiding by the 100ft from the cliff rule during peregrine nesting season, follow trail 261 to It’s end, and then follow the ridge down to the Molar. This way takes a little longer . Either way it’s a nice hike. Long pants recommended.
