Description Suggest change

This formation is connected to The Hand and offers the same steep climbing on large knobs that make this an excellent place for cragging.

Getting There Suggest change

From the reservoir head south on the Chalone Peak Trail for about 1/4 mile until you reach the western edge of the reservoir. Follow a climber's trail(carabiner trail marker) which skirts the western shores of the reservoir. Shortly past that, find a faint trail which heads north and up a short slope to connect to an old road bed. Follow the road bed for about 1/3 mile until you are just across from the last big formation you can see on the hillside to your left. This is the Hand/Thumb formation. A faint trail follows the drainage to the base of the rock.
