Description 

The Hobo is a small Flatironette that sits some 50 yards West of the Hillbilly. Good rock leads to a surprisingly small and exposed summit. This is a fun rock to bag after a climb of Stairway to Heaven or Hillbilly Rock...


Getting There 

Follow Skunk Canyon trail until a faint trail separates to the North and towards Hillbilly rock which by now looms above you. Hike under and to the North side of Hillbilly. Head West skirting the North edge and continue some 50 yards West to the now prominent HOBO.

From the Stariway finish look North East, the Hobo will be some 20 yards in that direction....
