This is a well featured slab of sandstone hidden just off the Ridge Trail about a 100 yards west of Goat Rock. There is a few top rope climbs ranging from 5.8 to 5.10. Judging by the amount of sand and moss on this rock it doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic. This would be a great area for a cool day as it gets lots of sun. The base of the climbs are a little treacherous so it might not be good for groups.
From the CRSP parking lot take the ridge trail towards Goat Rock. About 100 yards before you get to GR there is a few large formations up above the trail hidden in the trees. This one is just before Billy Goat Rock and only 30 feet off the trail, but may still be hard to see. Scramble through the brush to the right and around back to the left to find the anchors. Two bolts for one side and natural pro for the other.

After a bouldery start you will find a few nice finger pockets and some nice ledges. Avoiding the moss, move past a couple of bulges staying to the right towards to arete. The crux is about 3/4 the way up as you move past a football size boulder that is a major key hold. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
