A narrow side canyon that you can get to the bottom of without rappelling. This area stays pretty shady due to the proximity of the walls and is a good bet on warmer days at Freemont. Excellent granite with routes on both sides.
Cross the bridge and drive up a few hundred yards to a dirt pull out. You park on the rim near the route Catch 22. The approach for the Gauntlet is around 100 feet further up canyon.

It can be found about 3/4 the way down the Gauntlet on the right. Look for a single bolt at the start of a nice dihedral. A great well protected lead. You can walk off the top if you want to.
