Ascent Trip Report

The smaller formation anchoring the SW side of the pluton range. Very little prominence on this formation and little rock formations to climb. The NE range is definitely more technical and sexy to play on. But there is a USGS point and actual surveyed elevation on this point so I had to go tag it. There is actually one more small formation even further SW but I wanted to head back to the bigger rock while I still had time so I headed back across the connecting ridge and back tracked all the way back to climb a new face of Enchanted Rock.
