BETA PHOTO: Keys Peak from the desert floor

Description 

In the center of an alcove right and down hill about 50 to 100 ft from The Key Knob face is a deceptively low angle appearing crack. It's behind the deep shadow on the Keys Point photo. To descend, walk left to the lower rappel as mentioned for the Key Hole.

Protection 

Small to Med. spring gear & nuts, big stuff for the belay. A bolt protects the exit move.
