Yet another from a little further up canyon.  Gives a pretty good idea of what the airy summit is like.

This one is taken from a little past the Grad Boulder as heading up canyon.  The route GI Joe starts from the base of the big pine trees left of the spire.

The first view of the spire summit can be seen just left of the shadow line in this photo.  This is taken just before the big turn at Graduation Boulder.

Borderline Direct climbs up the cave-like feature on the North end of Keyhole Rock, then continues up the crack/groove above.

Mike Houston nearing the top of the Henry the Pig pitch on P3 of Borgoff's Blunder.  This is a very high quality pitch, despite being a little runout.

Nearing the top of pitch two.  This pitch is quite serious, so keep your cool.

Pitch one, after making the crux move.  The climbing through here is easy but run-out.  Overall a pretty wild pitch as it traverses about 100 feet.

This is a photo copied from Tim Stich on the North Gateway Rock page.  I drew a red line for the path we ascended, showing the anchors for the climb.  The yellow line at the top of the route is the direct finish.  The other yellow line shows the ridge that you can down-climb on the approach, while the yellow arrows show the two approximate locations of the rappels that can access this climb.

The route follows the obvious south ridge.  The bottom part of the route is cut off in this picture, but starts directly below the obvious ridge and bulges.

I copied this photo from the South Gateway Rock page and added the yellow line showing the Pipe Route, and the red line showing the second pitch of the Indian Head route.  I hope it helps.

This is the same picture Justin submitted.  (I hope you don't mind that I borrowed it).  The yellow line shows the approximate line that we climbed, as I described in my comments on the route.  We definitely felt that we were on route the whole way (although I climbed this many years ago, so the yellow line is approximate).  Hopefully this might clarify.  Henry, any comments?

The obvious long, wide, and steep crack is Max's Mayhem.  The right facing corner and wide crack to the right is Snuggles to Fall Crack.  You can climb to the saddle between the two, and then use the Fall Crack anchor, but the short, steep climbing to the summit of Star Point should not be missed.
