AKA the "death slab". Do not fall!
On the overhanging reddish West face there are two solo climbs. Both FAed by Eric "Peck" Heatwole. The right line is fun, 5.10ish, and somewhat clean and solid, but be very careful because a fall could easily kill you. The left line is harder, looser, and it's fun to hear Peck tell the story of the first ascent. A few years after these climbs started getting traffic someone put a single bolt on the top of the right line.
