Easy face climb with horizontal cracks and pockets for placements. There are two hangers at the base of the mushroom top. If you stop here the climbing is under 5.8. If you continue to the top, the climbing is around 5.8 and you must downclimb to the rap anchors on hand jive (five jive?) to then rappel to the ground or walk off to the east.
The Road Area of Lower Devil's Canyon, just NE of the parking area.
Small to medium gear. Two bolts on top below the mushroom top. Down climb then rap from five jive or walk down east if you top out. Rap off from bolts below the top if you stop here.

The route goes up the south face near the left corner. It is all natural pro, has two hangers at the base of the mushroom top. Most do not finish the route as I did it. You continue up from the anchor ad plug pro in until you top out and sling the huge leaning block on topfor pro. Downclimbking is easiest. Then rap hand jive or continue walking down to the east. The top out is prob 5.8.

Thanks for the clarification, Manny. I did not go to the top of the mushroom as I reached the anchor and figured the route ended there. I incorporated your beta into the route description. I also corrected the spelling of the name - my apologies!
