Description

Start on the ground below the left side of the perched block. Climb straight up to the top of the block. Or finish lower, step off left onto ledge.

Low section is the hard part. As it gets more exposed higher up, the holds get more large and positive.

Descent: traverse right a few feet on slopy ledge and scramble down with a slightly tricky move (as of 2015 could use large fallen tree to Aid the tricky move) -- or perhaps more interesting to downclimb the overhang about five feet left (west) of the fallen tree.

Warning: The rock at top might become loose, and it would be real bad to have something that big fall on somebody -- so check it out (using the descent?) before doing stuff on it or under it which might bring it down.

Location

The larger and lower of two substantial rocks resting on top of the main south-facing wall of the Sunny Picnics base area.

About 30 feet Right (east) from the Picnics Dihedral -- which is the junction of the wider South-facing wall of the Sunny Picnics area with East-facing wall which forms the Right end of the Tower Wall.

As of 2015 there is a large fallen tree on the rock ten or fifteen feet to the right.
