The Panhandle is a broad slab, averaging 35 ft. in height, similar to Superstar Slab at Mt. Rubidoux. The northern end is low angle, but the slab steepens to beyond vertical toward the southern end. The slab faces west, so it has sun exposure most of the day, except the early AM. This slab is situated below The Diner and just downhill is a group of boulders Spider Savage refers to as the "Nude Beach."

Getting There 

The Panhandle lies to the west of the Elephant Head and just downhill from The Diner.
