A large east-facing formation back behind the Freak Brothers Dome. Home to a small handful of routes, most notably the diverse Early Bird, as well as a couple of face climbs.
If approaching from the entrance to Wonderlands, walk past the Freak Bros Dome, then cut right up a wide valley. A trail will eventually cut right and a scramble will get you up to the main formation. Several poor quality trails precede the proper trail, if you have to do a bunch of bush wacking you’ve chosen one of these. If you run into a large, well, obelisk, in the middle of the pathway that’s The Red Obelisk and you’ve gone too far.
