Description 

The biggest feature of this rock is the cave-like slot on a west/sw facing wall with a left-facing flake sticking out to form a roof. It is separated from Prow Rock by a wide crack in a dihedral formed by these two. Prow is to the south of chain.

Getting There 

Probably 200 yards from the south parking lot. Look at the pics and find it from there.
