This is a large formation by mile marker 10 on Rampart Range Road.
See the guidebook.... It has great approach info and a pretty good map. Near mile marker 10 on Rampart Range Road is a pullout with parking.

This trail leads to the slab below the south face.

The main portion of the climb consists of sustained 5.11 and 5.12 climbing on fantastic incut edges and sidepulls. Begin by working up past three bolts that protect the approach gully to the base of the climb proper.
