Description 

This is the large formation on the west side of the Wonderland approach trail, located slightly south and west of Sargeant Rock. Easily identified by the many deep cracks/chimneys which split it's east face. Although few climbs exist, perhaps worthy of a stop for something quick and easy on the way in/out of the Wonderland for those so inclined. Morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Begin with the standard Wonderland approach past Uncle Willies and then look to your left (west) just before reaching Sargeant Rock. If you come to the remains of an old dam in the wash you've gone too far; those walking on the trail above and right of the wash at this point need to be more observant. The formation is obvious as a large somewhat unappealing wall with many deep cracks/chimneys. The approach is about 10 minutes from the car.
