One of the newer crags at Devil's Head, this rock features six sport routes up to 100' in length. This is also the closest rock to the firetwoer providing expansive views of the Lost Creek Wilderness, The Sangre De Cristos and Pike's Peak. So far the routes range in difficulty from 11c to 12d.
To get there go downhill 100 yards southwest from the ranger cabin just below the firetower.
