This is also called Mantel Alley. Start at the left corner at the beginning of the first buttress. Bridge the overhang and do a left hand mantel (crux). From there, it is easy to reach the Sundeck.


This can be found at the first buttress in Taylor Canyon Harmel's, there is a 5.4 5.5 climb/walk to the bottom from the south side of The Sundeck.


Cams to 3", no anchors; The Sundeck is a great point for anchoring.
