Description

This proud crag is one of the two highest points of "The Valley of the Kings." When standing in the valley and looking up at the "Corregated Wall" it is easily seen up and right and is the highest thing visible. There are two obvious crack systems and to the right of these a big patch of perfect brown varnish.

Getting There

Best approached from the "Rattlesnake Canyon shortcut" (past "Librarian Lust") or from the normal approach, which is all the way up Rattlesnake. If you are at the Witch Hunt, it is the next crag to the south. This whole area is a bit tricky to figure out and usually requires two visits to get the lay of the land.
