Starts at the foot of the left edge of the entrance to Two Finger canyon. A easy pleasant climb to a nice view point. Overall the rock is good.There is some protection ,however only two placements on the whole climb was used by the FA party.

Rap the Route
The road to Two Finger canyon is 1.5 miles south of the turn off to Three Fingers Canyon and 4.5 miles from the Hanksville road entrance. The road for the first 1/4 mile is not easy seen,go past the pond and the road can be seen rising up to the left across slick rock. From here the road is easy all the way to the canyon
Perhaps a few cams up to 11/2" and a couple of stoppers. Slings .Two 60m ropes for rappels.
