Start on the far right side of the columns and ascend the RHS of the face. It is not a bad route, but it is not as good as the direct line.

Complicated TR setup, with one 1/4" bolt.

Gorilla milk climbs the right side of the face in the picture.  To set up your toprope, it's a pretty easy scramble up the "chimney" to the right in the picture.  As of Aug 15, 2009, there were two bolts with hangers at the top of the route.

This is a good route for beginers as it has huge jugs and good handholds. As of May 30, 2001 there are two shiny new bolts on top to set it up although one is missing a hanger. Bring some medium cams for a flake/crack placement on top or a hanger. We'll see if a new hanger can't be put on that anchor.

Just climbed the route today and there were two bolts on the ledge at the top of the route -- and both bolts had hangars on them. Thank you to whoever put them up!
