Description

Visible from the parking area and justifiably popular with it's short approach, high-quality rock and many excellent crack and face routes. Please be aware this particular area is one of the most popular in this part of the Park so don't be surprised to see other parties when climbing here.

Getting There

Follow the marked trail from the parking area, passing the Grand Canyon and Rubicon Formation, along the way. A short bit of scrambling via easy cracks is necessary to access the elevated base below almost all of the routes. Plan on about 20 minutes for the approach.
