It starts just to the right of some green graffiti and just to the left of the line as shown in Handren's guide as Stemming Corner. Stem up twin cracks in the corner, past a small tree to the descent ledge.

Descent Options:

Walk off up and to the right or rappel from the tree at the top which has two pieces of webbing about two feet up on the tree and two rap rings.

3 out of 5 stars This route is actually just left of the line shown in Handren's Guide

Started climbing this route about two feet to the right of the center of the green graffiti and proceeded straight up the crack, doing some stemming at the double crack area. Several slings about four feet up on the pine tree at the top of the climb. Easiest access to this route is to park at the last wide spot on the rocky gap road directly opposite the climb. The trail up the slope is visible as you cross the wash.
