This is the Southern most part of the formation before the trail rounds the corner and heads back North towards Asterisk Pass. The most popular route in the area is Kunza Korner.

Getting There

Follow the river South past a sea of chossy greenish rock until you reach the tip. There is a cave like feature at the Tip which offers rain protection and shade from the summer Sun.
