This is a big block of sandstone and very nearly square. At 20 feet, some of the problems are highballs. Most problems are in the lower V grades with a few exceptions. A circumlocutional traverse is possible.

There's an anchor point on top, but about a year or two ago I ran into a guy that "keeps an eye on the place" and he said that someone continuously removes the bolt, so it may or may not be there.

I was there a couple months ago, and the anchor was chopped.

I first climbed here in 1997 and have visited from time to time since then and it seems to be real hit or miss if the anchor is there. If the bolts are gone you can get some traditional protection in to make an anchor.
