Just west of a large buttress in the middle of the section before the plateau to the west are two climbs that climb the sides of a prominent chimney/crack/double arete system. This is the left route that starts up a steep west facing desert varnish flake covered wall to a large sloping north facing ledge about 40' up. From there, the route traverses right, then up another steep and semi-hollow face and rounded arete. Anchors are in a sweet little stance near top of wall.

Descent Options:

Rap wall or rugged downclimb off backside.

3 out of 5 stars FA

Fun, balancy and steep. Careful on the rap, one of the FA party rapped off the end of our rope and fell 10' to the deck. Hence the name.
