East face of the Sphinx, left side.
A small crag that had only four routes until recently. The east face is warm on a sunny day in the winter as is the west face later in the day. Few have climbed here as the approach before the fire was pretty nasty with a lot of Manzanita. Rock is a little sharp as most rock in the Windy Point area is. Some of the new routes have some short sections of grainy stuff but that should go away with a little climbing activity.
Approach the same as Dr. Death and Paradox Rock. See SQ II. page 88.
Weather station 3.2 miles from here

Just got out here yesterday for the first time and found it to be a fun area that's nice and warm. There are several good routes with convenient clip-n-lower anchors. Good work and thanks to the FAs!
