The Cornerstone is a large formation located in the far reaches of the Wonderland Valley. It's home to a fine assortment of face and crack routes including As the Crags Turn (5.7), General Hospital (5.9), All My Children (5.8) and Tomato Amnesia (5.10a).

The east side of the formation can be identified by the left leaning flake system ( "As The Crag Turns" ) and the large flake system which splits the face ( "General Hospital" and "Rope Opera" ).
