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 and not especially memorable route left of H.R. Harman. Begin 20' left of H.R. Hardman and climb the face past two bolts. Decent pro and moves but not as high-quality as the neighboring route....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
