Home to the finest hand crack at Lightning Dome, this area is best identified by finding the slender pine that grows out of an obvious crack system; this is the namesake route of “Midnight Fright.”

Getting There 

Park at a large pullout at mile 21.1. Cross the highway to a road cut and scramble up a left trending ramp to the trail. Follow this to the base of the wall near the Fat Albert arch. Walk right about 200 feet, past a couple large Ponderosa pines to a narrow ledge with a bush. Expect 15 minutes.

There are two ways to descend from these routes:
1. A single rope rappel off a tree into the gully that faces “Fat Albert.”
2. Walk off to climber’s right from the top and circle back around to the base.
