This rock is a slender flatironette that runs West to the North of the Red Devil (they are actually connected). It starts some 100ft before Red Devil as you approach it's East face, and forms a small amphitheater to the North of its base.

As it runs West, it is taller than the base of Red devil and this creates an overhanging feature. It finally runs out after some 400ft.

It provides a fun and very exposed scramble on the overhang that overlooks Red Devil.

Getting There 

Follow directions as for Red Devil... It will come into view about 100 ft before it. It starts literally next to the trail...
