This is the strata 2 layers behind Pulpit Rock. It is rather much broader than tall. From the parking area, the upper left face appears quite smooth and less featured. The left edge and top of this rock are on the skyline from the parking area. There is a somewhat clogged slope behind this strata. To descend off the top of the left side, we slung a decent-sized horn and rapped 30' off a biner. Given the lack of an obvious downclimb or scramble off, this side of the rock appears to have been unclimbed or at least previously unsummited.
Go east past the Lumpy Ridge trailhead, go northward on a dirt road to the small (14 car?) parking area perhaps 2 miles in. Head north from the McGraw Ranch trailhead onto National Forest land. There is a cairned trail once you get 150 yards from the barn. Go up and left to the base of the rock we're calling First Pew. You can climb Features on a Slabscape and link it to a route on this rock or you can skirt around the base of First Pew and gain the gully between First Pew and Second Pew.
This crag appears to be on Comanche Wilderness land, so power drills are not allowed. Also, they prefer camoflauged hangers.
Cell phone reception
From some checking, it seems you can get a Verizon signal here, but you can't get a AT&T or Cricket signal here.

This is a line that continues above Is This Your Crack? or Vegan and heads to the top of the Second Pew. It takes on the dihedral to the right of the obvious cave (which was a mixed climb in late March) at mid-height on the right side of the Second Pew. The 1st pitch of this is worth the effort. The section above this weaves around to avoid some weirdness, but it could be straightened out.P1.
