This cliff is not specifically described in the published guides. In Touch the Sky it is listed as Stonehenge, but the Poorperson's Guidebook describes the whole mass as Not-Stonehenge. The east side of the cliff (visible to your left while descending the Sunday Gulch Trail) sports an overhanging off-width called Crazyhorse first climbed by Steve Levin and Kevin Bein in 1980. On the other side is a mossy plateau that is a nice spot to sit and listen to the bubbling stream. On this side of the cliff the rock is shaded for most of the day.

Getting There 

About 150 feet down the Sunday Gulch Trail from the trailhead near the dam look to your left for the overhanging off-width.
