This route is hard to find. From "Another One Bites the Dust" continue along the wall a few feet until you cross a drainage. From here head right and you'll see another wall on your left. Follow a faint trail/bushwack along this wall for 500-1000ft across another couple of drainages. Eventually you'll see an obvious breakdown on your left between the main wall and a buttress. Make your way up this breakdown and you'll see this hand crack straight ahead on the buttress. The crack has a couple obvious keystones half way up, one of these is loose so heads up.

Descent Options:

Top out and rappel from a large tree. Be sure to enjoy the great view while you're up there.

3 out of 5 stars Good 5.8

Despite the hike this route is a lot of fun and the spectacular view is well worth it. Make this one of the last climbs of the day because the hike will drain your energy supply.
