The Area 

This west facing rock is found along the Wonderland Valley Trail. At last check it had six recorded routes on it. Rock quality is fair to good. Descent from the top is via a 2 bolt anchor near the top of Rock Star or by downclimbing the route 39 Steps (5.4) on the south face.

Getting There 

Access hiking the wash via Uncle Willie's Food Store. It's on the right hand side of the trail just when the narrow valley begins to open up.
