Many formations with noses half as fine as this one are immediately defined as faces, but apparently this rock is only a nose.

The slickrock and rugged deserts of southern Utah are home to an extraordinary number of suggestive formations. Perhaps it is the irony of Mormon geographic predestination--that revelation which caused Brigham Young, upon sighting the Great Salt Lake Desert, to brashly declare: "This is the place." Or perhaps some outlaw underbelly of Mormonism which burst forth topographically because it was so tightly constrained socially. And so we are blessed with: Molly's Nipple, Brighams Unit, Cads Crotch, The Bishops Prick, Queen Annes Bottom and Nipple Butte, to name just a few.
