Description

This mostly South facing crag on the Eastern edge of Southern Benton crags is host to a couple of fine Barnes/Hutten routes.

Getting There

From the Southern parking area head North along the Western edge of Caiman and Crocodile Rocks, then turn East (right). Work your way through a narrow passage and continue heading East (past Olduvai Rock) over the easiest terrain you can find (there are boulders to walk around and high/low options). If you spot a chimney/chasm looking feature with a tattered fixed rope in front of you (facing East) you're at the start of the left side routes. To reach the lower, right side routes, head slightly right then left down easy slab past a short featured face. At the bottom turn North (left) and walk a few steps into the alcove of Clock Rock.

If all of this sounds a bit confusing look at the topo overview picture.
