About The Egg:

The Egg is the prominent mace-shaped formation located west of The Chicken (aka Hyperion Slab) at the south entrance to the canyon. The Egg is ~ 120 feet in height (about 80 ft on the uphill side). There are routes on the nice rounded buttress on the south side (The Egg Cup), as well as, a route on each of the west and northeast faces. The rock is sandstone conglomerate, which tends to be chossy. All routes are bolted.
Approach: From the parking area, walk up the dirt road past the white gate. Once the crag comes into view, take the dirt track on the right toward the crag. Skirt the large formation with the caves on the south (left) side. Continue west on the use trail until it winds around to the north. Walk up the hill into the canyon.
