The parking for this rock is about a 10th of a mile past the rock on the right.

There is a public bathroom (2 pit toilets) another 10th of a mile up the road on the left.

Getting There 

It is 2.8 miles from the end of the pavement. Just past the rock there is a pullout area big enough for parking maybe 3 cars.

The approach trail starts at the parking area. Head downhill and across the creek.

Climbing Season

For the Phantom Canyon area.

The 2 climbs on the left side of this wall are fun and seem a bit better quality than those on the right. Still plenty of rock around this area to develop.
