Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Located on the West side of the Smith Formation, Cod Rock is actually a free standing formation, a huge block of tuff. Flounder Rock is about 125' to the left, closer to Asterisk Pass.
There are a small handful of routes on the formation including some more recent additions. The most popular route remains Sunset Slab and can be found in the Watt's guide.

Getting There 

You have two good options...
1. hike over asterisk pass then hike south
2. hike around the Southern Tip of the Smith formation and continue back North

Look for a climbers path leading uphill to the formation (see photo)
