These rocks are not natural - I laid them out this way LAST YEAR. And they are still in the same spot! Here's the thing - Precipice is a beautiful, beautiful lake, but it's not great for camping. It's all like this - good luck pitching a tent. If you don't mind sleeping open-air on sloped rocks, knock yourself out. As long as the weather is okay. If you want to pitch a tent or don't like exposure, there are some great campsites above and below in just as scenic locations. But we still end up staying here. It's difficult to resist the siren call of Precipice.
Anyways, I put these rocks here last year to prevent myself from rolling off the rock overnight. They worked relatively well, so I stayed in the same spot this year.
