Description 

This prominent protrusion is visible from the road, and offers both sun and shade. It's a bit more of a walk than many of the walls here, but would definitely be a quiet place to explore.

Many bolted climbs on both the north and south aspects, offering some multi-pitch, and a few mixed climbs. Climbs range from 5.8 to 11c, and a stick clip is encouraged for some of them.

Getting There 

From the parking area, cross to the left side of the road and find your way via a goat trail to the base of the prominent formation a slight distance off the road to the northwest.

Climbing Season
