About thirty feet down and left from the start of Arm Forces is a smaller, less dramatic corner. Climb this passing (not surprisingly) a few bulges en route to a large ledge. Descend via a short scramble down the gully to the left.

Beware of the mojave green rattlesnake that lives in the horizontal crack about thirty feet up. He's cranky.

As of 1/10/14, no rattlesnake was spotted. A fun route on great rock.

no rattlesnake. Can rap down if you do some 5th class moves up and around to the right after you hit the ledge or you can take the climb straight up the varnish face after you hit the ledge. This will gain you the rap anchors from the 5.9 to the right.
