This bell shaped rock sits to the climber's lower-left of Blob Rock. The anchors consist of two sets of bolts with a fifth bolt about 10 feet to the climber's left.

If you use a self equalizing anchor on each set of bolts then it is possible to do two or three routes off of each anchor. The climbing is considerably easier than on Blob Rock, which makes this a good place to take beginners. There are one or two hard moves to be had, but it's not worth setting up a rope for.

Getting There 

As with Blob Rock, drive up to Fishcreek Falls area and park in the lower lot (don't forget five bucks!). Start walking towards the upper lot and take the first established trail on your left. This is the uranium mine trail. It used to be a road so it is very obvious and easy to follow. This will take you to a direct view of Blob Rock after about 15 minutes of hiking.

In my opinion, the best way to get to the base of the rock is to first approach the anchors using the trail to Blob Rock (head left at the base of Blob), then set your TR and rap to the base.

Otherwise, you can reach the base by heading left at the first fork in the trail when Blob is in sight, then bushwhacking to the base. To reach the anchors from the base there is a class 4 scramble around to the left of the climbs, or an easier but longer approach via the Blob Rock trail.
