This diminutive tower / rock is in the same strata as Pulpit Rock but a bit further to the west. Its anchor bolts and rap sling drew the eye as we ventured up Pulpit Rock. Unfortunately, the anchor bolts might be the best part of the rock. The short, interesting looking, north face huecos are not as good as they first appear. The rock is a bit friable, lichen covered, and creaky in spots. Perhaps that is why the face did not get bolted yet (it apparently is a project). The east face scramble is low angled and maybe 60 feet. The chimney / slot of the north face needs a thorough scrubbing to be worth the effort. The south and west faces are oddly discontinuous.
From the McGraw Ranch / Cow Creek Canyon trailhead, hike to the east side of the barn and find the cairned trail to the base of Pulpit Rock. Once at its base, traverse west maybe 200 yards to find this tiny tower.
This crag appears to be on Comanche Wilderness land, so power drills are not allowed. Also, they prefer camoflauged hangers.
