Witness Rock is a boulder right on the Woodpecker Cliff Line. It offers breath taking views of the Hills as well as photogenic pictures of Mt. Rushmore in the background. Smear and crystals gain you the top. 3 routes exist left, center, and right.

Getting There 

Park at the Iron Mtn Road pull off. follow faint trail North that goes behind Pain Staker and The Test Piece into the forest. I believe there is a forest marker on the trail before the trees. Follow threw the trees and look for the only good boulder up on the cliff line.
