I have seen many rock art panels over the years. Poop Panel is the only panel that is... well... covered in poop! The panel is under an overhang near First Rock as you initially reach Gold Butte. The spot is apparently a good one for nesting birds as well as rock art. An enormous nest above the panel, likely eagle, has led to the rock art being mostly covered by bird poop.

What rock art is visible is interesting. The north end of this formation is the site of a large amount of more modern graffiti. PLEASE DO NOT ADD TO THE GRAFFITI AT THE NORTH END OF THE ROCK. This is the start of the Doodlebug Arch hike as well, and a great short hike to make for a fuller outing than just seeing the panel.
