The full formation, as seen from the approach.

Description 

This is the eye-catching formation located alongside Highway 12. The ridge is extremely photogenic and despite being the only rock in sight, offers a wide variety of boulder features (huecos, double cracks, splitters, and some mild overhangs), plus plenty of easy ways up/down. Rock is mostly bomber, though covered with moss. Landings are safe, but sloped, (beware of cow patties). Exposed to the sun save for the single majestic tree atop the formation.


Getting There 

Park across CA-12 in the very large lot of the "Zippy Mart" gas station. Approach head on (take care crossing the highway) or circle through the trailer park to the west for an easier fence hop and less steep hike. Formation is about 300 meters from the road.

This area is on private property. Was out there about a week ago and got a visit from the sheriff's dept.
