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