This blade of rock is in the northern part of the Monster area and offers a lot of really nice new bolted lines as wells as old school routes, all long routes without much traffic nearby.
From the Monster sign in, head on the trail to the west and cut off to the right up a bouldery gully. After a little scrambling over 3rd class boulders, you'll jump a small gap and then see a very obvious trail. Follow this trail down and left through a medium sized corridor. The Abominable Snowman will be on your right. The base of it is really gravel-y and worn.
