Essentially a three part climb, this route starts up a thin crack surrounded by jugs on the face and deposits you on a ledge. From the ledge, climb the interesting blocky tower to its peak before stepping across the void to climb the short crack in the wall on the right. Pull over onto the top and you're done.


This climb starts 15' left of Climber's Corner, next to the tree. Toprope access is best (safest) from the left side by Taco Bell.


Toprope or standard rack

I found the hardest part of the route to be the second crack to get the topout. If you or your partner are nervous climbing past you toprope anchor then I would suggest pushing it back a foot and a half and deal with the drag from running over the edge. The difficultly of this route may be a lower without the completely topping out.
