Description 

Several areas worth noting in the basin beneath the main Granite Mountain cliff. Rock quality varies from fine-grained rock found at the main cliff to a coarser grained rock interspersed with chunky, chickenhead like intrusions.


Getting There 

Use the same trailhed parking areas as for Granite Mountain.
