Just off the road, this small rock has good routes in the 5.10 range. The southwest side (Fire or Retire, Cranking Skills or Hospital Bills) is warm and protected from the wind, and would be a location on colder days. The northeast face (No Perch is Necessary, The Usual Suspects) is less sheltered.

Getting There 

Park in the south side pullout a few hundred yards before the Real Hidden Valley/Intersection Rock intersection. The southeast face is clearly visible from the road. To approach it, walk around the right and up. For the south face head left and around.
