This crag is seen to the east from Roadside Rock. It is the next formation to the north of the Chessmen Pinnacles (Private Property-No Trespassing). The back-side of this formation may be on private property and climbing there should be avoided.
A few routes have been done on the left side of the West Face.

Getting There 

Park at Roadside Rock, walk across the desert, a few hundred yards, to this formation. DO NOT go on the Cohn Property! You will be shot at!

On the lower left-side of the west face is slabby section with an obvious right leaning crack. To the left of this is a black streak with two small roofs at the bottom - this is the route. Pull the roofs then you're going to have to figure it out. It goes straight up on interesting face moves. The crack to the right and the chimney to the right of that have also been climbed. I'm not responsible for naming this route....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
