DescriptionSunny south facing mostly low angle apron of rock with a distinctive window feature on its NW margin. This area is essentially the Souteast facing wall of the same feature that Paleface Slab is on, just paleface slab faces southwest.
There are at least a handful of routes on this wall that are not published in any guidebook
To get off walk along the ridge away from the wash (NW) for about 400 feet. Look for a gully down and left with a decently cairned trail. This trail will take you past Paleface slab down to the wash.
Getting ThereShort approach for the stronghold. Drive to the end of the road on the west side. Hike up the trail towards Whale Dome (head up drainage heading NW from the parking lot). This area is the first major formation on the left side of the drainage. Takes about 15-30 minutes depending on how good you are at staying the trails that zig zag in and out of the wash. There is a subtle trail to the base of the wall, but don't worry if you can't find it, it's not far from the wash.
