DescriptionThis tall formation sits all alone in the desert to the northwest of the main Hall of Horrors Area and can be a nice place to escape to if there are crowds there. Climbs here range from 5.6 to 5.12a with the majority in the 5.10 and under range with a nice assortment of both cracks and faces.
Some of the better routes here include Arturo's Special (5.8), Mission Impossible (5.11b) and Triumph Arch (5.11d).
Getting ThereHike about 200 meters northwest from West Wall Outer (Buckets to Burbank Area) following a vague trail. The approach takes about 10-15 minutes from the parking area at Hall of Horrors.
