The Area 

A small freestanding formation that has four routes on it, kinda resembling a pulled molar! I don't think anything can be easily TR'd as one of the four routes must be climbed to access the top of the rock.


Getting There 

Turn at the Key's View turnoff, and after about 150 yards past the Cap Rock parking area this formation is found on the left hand side of the road, maybe 50 yards from the road.

This is the easiest route on the formation, and the original. A corner start leads to a slightly overhanging layback/fingers crack up the south side of the rock. A tall, scary boulder problem or a fairly serious runout lead. Orignally one had to jump-off to a lower boulder via the north side....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
