This is the triangular, fin-shaped rock between One-Eyed Cat and Peyronie’s walls, south of Voodoo Pin. Chester Rock is the first wall you will encounter after crossing the stream bed. It has one moderate sport route on its west face and one fairly stiff sport route on its east face.

Getting There 

Standard approach for Voodoo Garden, cross the stream bed and look for the east-west facing fin-shaped rock in the center of the area, low on the hill.
