Can anyone chime on what the approach is like? Approximate duration, incline and elevation gain would be great.

Thanks.

Think of it as going to about the midpoint (Spatula - just left and below the Weeping Wall) being about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, depending on age, fitness, and what you're packing. Under 30, you can run up it, btw 30-45 its a fast hike, 45 and up, you might consider bagging the climb, the approach was a good enough workout. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

It is a nice hike through pine forest. The trail is about one mile +/- with about 500 foot elevation gain from the road to the rock. The trail is not very steep, there are a few rocks to step up on and some switch backs. It is not very demanding. The trail along the base of the rock has a few spots where you need to scramble on some 3rd class rock, depending upon which route you are hiking to.
