Dome with a rock perched on it top.
Just west about 30 feet left from a 18-24 inch diameter mature tree (the "Giving Tree").

Right side is a slab with interesting features. Three top-rope routes so far.

Left is an overhanging wall mostly blank except for a crack (unclimbed so far) in its middle. One (contrived) top-rope route at its left end.

Could set up Top-Rope anchor by scrambling up around right side, using static line off trees.

. (Photo with route lines to be added soon) .

Getting There 

Follow the directions for the Giving Tree Entry area. Then this sector is on the left side.
