Doesn’t really sound that neat, only a 200 ft cliff? Not great rock quality either? Apparently it is sport. Maybe bring a single rack and nuts just in case?


The road is essentially right below the peak (200 vertical feet below and 0.1 mile away). It looks like you park a little before you get directly underneath, and then maybe there’s some traverse trails on the steep dirt. Looks like 0.2 miles, 200 ft gain, 20 minutes or less.


This is an interesting route ascending the northernmost crack on the W face. Climb a left facing corner along a pillar to a small belay stance atop the pillar. Continue ascending right on some loose rock and follow a shallow chimney to the terrace.
