Description 

This area is in between the Hen House and the Zebra Cliffs. I believe it is just east of The Black Pearl. It is more or less a very large, isolated formation, with two good routes on it.

Getting There 

Hike from Live Oak is probably best , because you can see the formation as you are hiking to it. Hike as if you are going south to the Hen House, and when you see a formation to the west, that would be The Bismark. Hike over to it. Mabye 20 to 30 min. to approach.
