A mega classic for the area. Starts on the West face of the pinnacle next to a big ponderosa tree and one route left of Turkey Heads. Begin by following a series of 3 bolts on a classic slab to a rest stance below an intimidating overhang. Clip high and come down for a rest, or fire on through, gunning for big heuco's that pepper the upper face. Exhilarating finish moves top off this classic adventure.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower off quick-links.
