This small and often overlooked wall has but a handfull of routes but can be a fun diversion if in the area. Routes here include Tobin Bias (5.6), Wish You Were Here (5.10b) and Electric Eye (5.11b).

Getting There 

Approach from the lower portion of Little Hunk - NE Face (Right) by hiking through Scrub Oak and then scrambling up slabs (stay left) until even with the upper portion of Little Hunk - NE Face (Right). The approach is mostly level until the end and takes 15-20 minutes from the nearest parking area.
