Tim Loften and I found this crag in early April, 1977. I recall that it lies close to Hwy 96, in a gulch to the north of the highway. I then led the possible first ascent of the obvious dihedral splitting the rock. I haven't been back since, and I can't remember exactly where it is. As far as I can tell, it hasn't previously been documented in print, or on MP. It lies to the west of the biggest rock in the area, which has been called Lover's Leap and which which we also climbed.

Two pitches, isn't it? Pretty sure I have been there several years ago. Approach was maybe 40 mins + from the road, that sound right to you, George? I think there is a vague description in a small publication calling it "Queen of the Forest." Mar 10, 2018
I recall that the route is only one pitch and isn't far from the road. In the accompanying photo, I am getting close to the overhang that is at least 3/4 of the way up the dihedral. It does lie in the forest. Mar 11, 2018
