This route is on the unique, blocky formation found atop the Charlatan. It is said to resembel a woman with flowing hair from certain angles...hence the name. Exposed, but easy, this thin finger crack is an excellent warm up or down to toproping or leading Spooky. There is a difficult finger crack found on the opposite side where many climbers leave there gear or rest in the afternoon shade. Two bolt anchor with rings at the top. Rappel same side you've climbed. Rapping over the steep side can be tricky and grate your knuckles if you're not careful!

3 out of 5 stars fun

worthwhile for its position and exposure, but the climbing is also more interesting than I thought
