This is route 2 on the topo (shown for Rapunzel, Rapunzel). It starts up over blocky holds with liebacks, solid edges and a crack up top. This is a cool, well-bolted route (8 bolts) with good exposure.
This is a neat climb on one of the most prominent formations at The Palace. High and slightly left from the main trail along Cedar Creek, you can't miss seeing it from the road. A super, steep trail leading up to it is found about 100 yards along the main trail from the entrance to the canyon (roughly opposite the 'Palace Pages').
At least 8 draws. A set of rap anchors are well-placed up top. A 50 meter rope will do.

The top of this climb is fun the bottom is OK. Rapunzel is an overall better route.

Interesting start, jug right above the first bolt is great to clip from. Moves are more interesting and spicy than Rapunzel.
