The center-piece of the area. This 40-feet tall formation boasts an excellent traverse which goes in both directions at V0+ as well as several decent top-outs which can be easily top-roped.

Getting There 

From West Camino Cielo Road, follow obvious climbers trails west. Turn right whenever given a choice. The trail dumps you on top of the Mouth. Scramble down the west side to access routes.
