(from the Falcon Guide) Your best escape from the jaws of destruction if you are north of The Amphitheater. Otherwise, stay away. A short 5.8 section leads to 3rd class scrambling (loose) to the notch behind the North Tower. You may avoid the hard bit by climbing toward the tree on "Mack The Knife", traversing right, and downclimbing to a lower ledge.
