Description 

Start under an obvious "A" shaped chimney on the south side. 1. Climb over loose blocks into the obvious thin crack, left of the chimney. At crack's end, reach left into another crack. Up this to a ledge with a two-bolt anchor (A2, 100'). 2. Traverse right past two bolts onto the southeast face. Up a nice crack until it ends. Move right into a second, shallower and more fragile crack system. Up this (becomes better and steeper) to the top (A3-, 100').

Location 

Route is the detached tower/chimney on left side of Bull Canyon, just where the road is closed, 150 yards before you run into the Gemini Bridges. Watch out for falling jeeps. Start under an obvious "A" shaped chimney on the south side.
