Very interesting granite formations that are over billion years old. Many fun scrambling rocks. Top boulder of park is not a class 3 and most people summit the park on the boulder next to it about 10 feet lower with class 3.
Middlebrook Hill (to the east)and the small mountain to the west are both near higher neighbors but both are connected by a saddle just south to southeast of this formation. The roadway bisects the saddle as the highest col at an elevation above 1,220. Since neither the peak countour of 1,300 not the col have exact elevations it could both could be higher.Phone GPS altimeter gave 1,310 on boulder next to tallest so day 1,320 at HP (estimated) and confirmed that the lower parking lot road entrance to park was just at or below 1,200 as shown on USGS so estimate of col is 1,225
