Description 

The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner

Climb up just right of The Ladder in the chimney until you get to a ledge system just a few feet off the ground. Traverse right and up to and through the left facing corner next to the giant block. At the top of the block go far left to a hand crack and climb to the top of the crack, expect a pile of dirt or mud there. Or you can go around the corner right to finish on The Detached Flake-Saucony.

Thirty years ago trying to exit out of Millbrook in the dark I looked up at this climb and thought it might be a good way to get out. It is still a very scary climb today, don't know why.

I recall Rich Romano telling me back in the 70's that he may have climbed up and out that way ... but he could not remember back then. So we are not sure if Romano has done this first solo or not.

The climb is named after the giant block at the corner of the cliff.

Location 

Climb up just right of The Ladder in the chimney.

Protection 

None getting to the block at the corner stone.
