Climbing this after a snowstorm in February of '08...
Scramble up to a large ledge with bushes and a tree on the west side of the formation. Climb 20 feet to short, right-facing, wide-crack dihedral and roof with a bolt. An old #4 Camalot is useful for protecting moves to bolt. Pull stiff 10+ moves past bolt and into the wide crack (you can also chimney straight into the crack although it didn't look as fun - 5.9+). Once you are into the meat and potatoes, plug a couple pieces of gear, but bolts protect the majority of the widest crack. No need for really wide gear. Really fun if you like it rough.
Obvious wide crack on west face of Tombstone.
Singles rack up to #4 camalot. Bolts protect the crux and the final 100 feet of offwidth.
