100 feet to the right of the Indian Writings sign on Potash Road, just to the left of a sandy-floored chimney (route on the right side of the chimney is Shadowfax).

Protection 

5 bolts to a 3-bolt anchor

There is a really fun TR variation on this climb if you start down in the cave to the left of the climb. Some loose rock but a solid variation ; not to mention the swing from the fall in the cave is always exciting.

Nice climb! A couple of the bolts, including one at the top anchor, are in need of repair.

The last bolt before the chains (the bolt that protects the high crux) is in really bad shape. It's sticking out about a half inch from the rock and the hanger is just rattling around. If that scares you, you might be able to protect that section with a yellow or larger TCU to the right of the bolt.
