Access Issue: Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details

Description

This is a short, easy, accessible warm-up scramble near the trail, and enough people appear to scramble it to keep the rock relatively clean of lichen.

Start left of the north (right edge) and head straight upon a variety of small holds. At the top, step down onto a couple of boulders, and scramble to the ground. It is best to exit left on the existing Der Zerkle approach trail and go back down to the Mallory Cave Trail.

Like Babyhorn downhill from this, it may be a good short climb for kids. As I remember, the tree on the back should provide anchor options.

Location

This route is visible from the Mallory Cave Trail through an opening in the trees.

Protection

None.
