Description 

This "F3" east face route is about 200 feet long. Since there is really no good pro on the entire face, it is best to leave the rope behind on this one. Pick a line and head up. The lichen and moss on this route can be avoided, and the rock is generally sound in nature. This rock makes a good scrambling finish to the Royal Arch trail. Descent: Walk off to the south.

Chalk bag.

The mid section of this rock has the most features and least moss. About half way up there is a wild dike that gives you some solid holds. A good approach route is from the end of Columbine St. Then head up towards Woods Quarry and scramble up the Regency first. Afterwards climb the Amoeboid, then finish with the grand traverse of Royal Arch.

I did this along with Amoeboid and The Royal Arch.... This one was the least pleasant. Perhaps the climbing wasn't any harder than 5.0, but there was so much moss and lichen on the rock.

If you do this, definitely continue on Amoeboid. The hike down the south side is a bit of a bushwack, so you may as well do both....
