Description:

Start in the center of the Necromancer Wall between two crack climbs at a large flake with a crack on the right hand side. Climb the incredible varnished face, wandering about to find good gear when needed near the harder moves. Pull past the first roof to the chains. One of the nicer single pitch 5.9 trad face climbs at Red Rock. -- An easier second pitch is possible. Walk off to the climbers left.

5 out of 5 stars Exciting Face and Roof

Really fun face moves over small nuts with a great roof pull to cap it off.
