DescriptionThe Headstone proper can be said to end on the right at Rock Nazi just before the trail drops under a large detached boulder. The Headstone is an imposing 250 ft West facing yellow wall that gets good sun from noon till sundown. If you climb at Devil's Head, you will climb The Headstone. It is pure classic.
Getting ThereFrom the Zinn Overlook, take a faint trail down and left, heading directly toward the most imposing crag in sight. Cross a small talus field to the base; routes start all the way to the left around the corner and in a huge dihedral.
Ed: I tracked the trail heading in and it's about 2 miles from the lower road when the gate to the campground is closed. Very obvious trail to the fire tower and Zinn Overlook (marked with a sign). -Ben
