Start climbing a wide crack with some stemming and smearing at the start. Work into a chimney that narrows as you go up. Crux is probably the top out depending on your body size. Short climb but worth doing if you like this sort of climbing or are camping at East L.A.


Crack/chimney immediately to the left of Hang Five. Scramble up the slab and step across the gap in the rocks to begin. Belay at any suitable crack on top of the formation.

Descend via a walk off or single rope rap off 2 bolts and rings around the corner to climber's left of top out. Some down climbing necessary to reach rap anchors.


Standard rack to #6 Friend. Something larger than a #6 Friend to sew it up though not needed for safety.
