Nothing too tall, but close to parking and quite unlikely you'll have a neighbor. Rock quality is reasonable and maybe ok if you're in the area and looking to get on a different formation from the well-known ones.
Traditional Crack is listed currently, but there are another few potential lines worth exploring, particularly the thinner crack just to its left.

Getting There 

After passing the Cap Rock parking lot while coming from Park Bl, it's the closest to roadside of the first set of formations on your left. The top is marked by an obvious single large boulder. 2 minute approach.
