Sweet view from the top of this feature. Great perspective of the whole Staunton Rocks area.

Fun, little rock for intro to Staunton and lead climbing. Tried a start between Phil and Maken Bacon (small gully start). Could not make this start work, so went left of gully, then back to between the two routes - fun 5.8ish.
