Approach:  From upper parking lot, take the Grand Canyon trail towards Diamond Back. After 3-4 minutes turn R and follow the Ward 1/Rock Oven mountain bike trail across a sandy bench, over a small bridge and uphill to a junction where the Sauerkraut mountain bike trail splits off to the L. Follow this uphill for about 5 minutes to a grassy bench rimmed by low cliffs. At a cairn, follow a faint trail  L (W) that contours around the hillside at the base of these cliffs for one or two minutes to the crag.
