This formation is entered so to provide as a peakbagging warning. Although this formation is constantly in view from all of the other formations in the Enchanted Rock Wilderness and is accessible by the outer loop trail, there is rigid fence with electrified lines and many no trespassing signs just before you get to the peak. This fence and warning signs is not visible until you hike right up to the formation and are turned away about 20 feet from the top. The summit is surrounded by this fence. The Saddle between PT 1705 and these granite peak formations leaves little prominence but the fall into the valley SE of the formation is deep.
