Squat Rock and Sphinx Rock are currently both closed.
From Pine (see area description), take Elk Creek Road West for approximately 0.7 miles to a small parking area (2, maybe 3 cars will fit). Hop boulders across the creek and follow the obvious trail for 5 minutes. It's best to keep following the trail to the point where your route starts as some unpleasant boulder hopping is required if you cut straight to the rock.

A nice route, but the crux is short and the rest of the route is a slabby crack to a broken end. Maybe 1.5 stars.Find the route just downhill from Kirk's Corner in an obvious R-facing dihedral with several large boulders at the base.Start with a small boulder problem to get on top of the boulder resting against the wall. The short (~10ft) thin crack is the crux, but takes a couple small stoppers and cams. Fire through this section and cruise the rest.
