Description 

Close to HVCG yet you never see anyone on it. This rock may have the best 5.4 chimney in the park for whatever that's worth.


Getting There 

This is the formation between the Blob and Rock Hudson. From the end of the main loop in HVCG towards the Outback. Outhouse Rock is directly to your right.

This is a short crack, but it's a terrific one for testing your hand jamming technique. The edge of the crack is rounded, so there is no easy alternative to jamming. A few balancy step-ups take you to the base of the crack. Jam up for a few fun moves, until you are in the wider, lower angle left-slanting part of the crack above.
