Park closed nightly from sunset to 7:00 am MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb the slabby South Face of the formation, around the corner from the striking overhanging prow. Jugs can be found the whole way up with a bit of meandering back and forth, however gear options are limited.

Location 

Belay at the bottom of the East Face and immediately climb to the left around the prow to the lower-angle South Face. Continue straight up the center of the face.

Walk off to the west and around the south side of the formation.

Protection 

Nuts and small cams. Badly protected after the start except for a single solid nut placement halfway up. Definite potential for a ground fall if the leader slips up.
