This formation is just north of Pine Tree Rock and holds a few north facing routes, none of which summit. Any of the three summits can be reached by one of the chimneys/troughs. Fairly steep wall with some challenging classics on good rock.
Follow the trail south past the sign in kiosk into the largest gully in Chopping Block area. The trail will bring you right up to the wall before it reaches Pine Tree Rock.
