A highly featured low angle slab of excellent rock quality, and the closest rock to the road. This juggy face makes for a fun warm-up free solo, but for those so inclined there is a modestly protected traditional line on the left flank. Around the left side at the base there is a near-vertical face that provides a few fun short routes.

Getting There 

Hike approximately 0.5 miles from the parking area, when you emerge from the chaparral to the open ridge keep hiking for a minute and the slab will become visible facing directly towards you. To reach the base, walk down a short loose gulley to the north (not the gully directly adjacent to the slab).
