Description 

This moderately sized rock holds several excellent traverse routes just uphill and into the shady trees from the main rock. About 20 feet long and climbable for the first 8 - 12 feet, this rock holds some excellent problems in the V0 - V5 range.

Altough the main rock is covered with poison oak, the intense shade from the surrounding trees keeps the ground around this rock covered with leaves, and fourtunately not covered in poison oak.

All routes walk off the back.

Getting There 

Apporach time:

Nov 16th - April 14th: 0 minutes
April 15th - Nov 15th: 5 minutes, since you'll have to walk down grizzly peak about .2 miles from the next parking pullout.

From the main parking pullout or entrance path from Grizzly Peak Ave, walk uphill on the left path around the main rock.The diagonal traverse rock will be right in front of you 20 feet ahead.
