DescriptionThis truly remarkable formation is actually an extremely large exfoliated flake (90+ feet tall by 60 feet by and only a couple feet thick) that has peeled away from the larger adjacent face. It has formed an amazing 95 foot long chimney on its inside (Firewater Chimney 5.10b) and sports a 10 bolt thin crack and face route on its exterior face (The Last Stand 5.11d/12a). Both routes are absolute classics (4 of 5 stars). It has the appearance of a large arrowhead, point down into the ground. North facing, it sees some sun late and early season, but is shady most of the day.
Getting ThereIt lies on the left end of the north facing cliffs (The Trad Crags) about 200 yards up and left of The Helmet. It lies almost directly below a prominent protuberance at the upper left end of The Trad Crags. Head east, up the Valley of Kings, staying along the right fork in the wash, then angle up the rocky slope to the base.
