Description 

This small block/pinnacle lies about 25 yards northeast of Disaster Dome. Two routes are known: Plantismal (5.8/9) on the southeast face (facing Disaster Dome) and Bring Your Own Wheelbarrow (10a) a fractured offwidth crack on the northeast face.

Getting There 

From the Southern Wonderland parking area, hike to a ruin (Uncle Willie's) then left under trees into the Wonderland Wash. Proceed north along the Wonderland Wash for about 0.5 mile where it opens up into a broader valley (the Wonderland Valley). The Astro Domes can be seen toward the northwest (leftish). Now head slightly to the left and proceed through a narrow spot on the main trail.

From here continue north along a trail for about 625 yards. In the process, you will pass Surprise Rock, Freak Brothers Dome and The Weenie on your right (east) and be just beyond Punk Rock to your left (west). At this point, Disaster Dome will be seen in profile about 275 yards to the west-northwest. From this vantage point, Wheelbarrow Rock is to the right of Disaster Dome.

This fractured offwidth crack is about 40+ feet long and lies on the steep northeast side of Wheelbarrow Rock. Near the top, it angles right and is more hand to fist size.
