This is a nice climb hidden in a big chimney on its right wall in a bigger buttress. There appears to be other activity nearby. We found it accidentally. It is 1.8 miles from the East Entriance kiosk (per Desert Rock III) on the Rim Rock Drive. There is a right-angle arrow sign on the road. Scramble up.
There is a nice, short, 25' 5.8+ clean corner with tight to wide hands below the climb for a warmup. Scramble up. Enter the chimney. A hand crack with face holds around.
I used 2 #3 1/2, 3 #3, 3 #2 1/2, 2 #2, 1 #1/2 (near top) Friends; an old piton; an old 1/4" bolt, & a wire.
