Is this the little roof that is right above a very elaborate rock "home" ? If so the parking is at Buckskin Cliff Shadows Park, an equestrian park. It is south of the Gun Club. This is also the parking area for the Rodeo Wall which lies up wash northwest of this area.

Michelle, you are exactly correct. That little home, was in fact, the inspiration behind our naming of the Hobo's Attic. The location is, as mentioned, on the same mountain as the Gun Club. The Gun Club is on the east facing aspect whereas Hobo's is on the opposite side, facing west. From the equestrian park, begin hiking west for approximately 10 min, following the wash between two mountains. Just prior to reaching the toe of the mountain to your right (Gun Club Mt.), pick up a trail that starts heading up the hill and contours around the toe to the north. Follow the trail for 10 more minutes, traversing north and uphill to the terraced roof feature. Please don't mess with or investigate the rock home too closely, someone lives there. Topping out these problems (after the steepness) puts you up around 25-30 feet on somewhat loose terrain (but it's low 5th class and has been cleaned of most hazards). Of course one could drop off but topping out is way more exciting and fulfilling. Multiple pads are a great idea. This is a limestone, winter destination and most worthwhile when the sandstone is wet. Many variations/link ups/traverses are possible (making grades and names pointless for us to report), choose your own adventure.
