This formation is around the right (south east) side of Zenyatta Entrada. It climbs the prairie dog/alien looking towers separated from the tower of babel by a gash. Start further right & climb a sandy crack into a U, then into a cavern, up on top of a fin, c2 or a1 chossy seam to a clean (for arches) section that ribs in a ridge.
