Several hundred yards southwest of the Comic Strip formation is this solitary crag sitting on the desert floor. The majority of routes tend to be short face climbs, although some cracks are to be found here as well. Routes range in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.11d with most in the 5.10 and under range making this a good location for climbers seeking that range. Highlights include H.R. Hardman (5.8), T-N-T (5.10c) and Dirty Tricks (5.11d).
Approach as for the main Comic Book formation, but veer off right following a faint path to the obvious formation. The hike takes about 15 minutes from the car.

A short but fun sport route up the north face of the large block leaning against the northeast face of Watergate Rock. An overhung start plants you onto a narrow flake/ramp which leads upwards to the crux - delicate smearing where the ramp ends. Well-protected and fun with a variety of moves on good rock. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
