BETA PHOTO: Capitulation Stone.


Capitulation is a medium-sized boulder with something to climb on each face. The rock quality is good throughout most of the boulder but is friable in areas. In addition, some sections of the boulder are some of the sharpest, bumpiest, nastiest rock I've seen in the canyon. The landings that surround the boulder are good.

Getting There 

From the second parking of Zephyr, cross over the barbed wire fence to the south, then head uphill in a southeasterly direction, and the boulder will be visible near the crest of the hill. Reference the page map for its exact location.
