A 1 pitch climb past a mushroom-shaped roof about 25m up. Climb the crack leading through the center of the mushroom and continue up a crack/chimney to a large pine. The climbing is good through the roof with crappy brush and 4th class afterward. Lots of spots/choices to build a gear anchor.
The start is about 30 m right of Packrat Dihedral. Look for the mushroom shaped roof about 25 m up the wall. For the descent, you can climb up and go left for awhile to reach the standard descent trail (more pleasant) or do the "East Gully" descent as described on page 7 of Gary Clark's El Rito trad area guide.
Trad rack with stoppers and cams to 3"; 6-8 double length runners.
