Description

Seen from the base, it's a gothic spire which tapers from a wide base oriented east-west, to a fantastical array of complex features at the summit the north-south aspect is a narrow sliver of sculpted rock. In some of the tuff-breccia sections, it looks like there are numerous protruding "chicken-heads," some more akin to dragon-heads, or snake-heads; additionally criss-crossing the formation are weathered dikes of an intrusive limestone-type rock which often are shaped like thick slabs of flagstone, all pretty-much oriented the same.

Getting There

Per previous description, then taking road north on the east side of the mountain-- following a 5 minute hike, one reaches the base.
