Base Rock is a medium-sized boulder. The rock quality is solid and slightly sandy. Landings that surround is are primarily good. Problems exist on the south, west, and east faces.

Getting There 

From the parking area, follow the trail down the hill, cross East Creek, then head uphill west until reaching a foot path, follow the foot path north for a few minutes, leave the trail toward the west at the wash, follow the wash for no more than a few minutes, and the boulder will be on the right. Reference the page map for a precise location.
