This is found on a small rock just left of Nolina Crack. An overhanging flared corner (bolt protecting entry move as indicated in guidebook is no longer there; good pro galore) leads to a flake, then up steep face protected by one bolt to topout.

Descent Options:

Traverse to climber's right as for Twin Cracks and downclimb gully.

4 out of 5 stars .

Fun route, good mix of techniques. First 15 feet climb more like a boulder problem, great pro. Face at the top has good holds if you figure out how to use them right, which sometimes isn't obvious. Crux on lead is probably going from the face holds to the lieback flake down low, a great climb!
