This is a small slabby formation 200' up the steep gully immedeately west of the Narrows. It can be located by the clean slab surrounded by discontinuous rock.
Park at the pulloff at the base of Mechanical Man, and scramble up the gully just west of the Narrows. Use extreme caution when approaching, as there is a lot of loose rock, that would fall directly onto traffic. When you reach a cliffband that appears pretty sketchy, head as far left as you can go, and traverse across the top.
