Topo of Archer/Tarver routes across from Spaghetti Western.  
Route A: Start at the lowest point on the left edge of the face. Climb past 2 bolts and 2 TCU placements in thin horizontals. A long, easy runout leads to a bushy ledge. This route gains access to the much nicer, upper routes. 5.7 FA - Geoff Archer & Bob Tarver 2/91

Route B: From atop the previous route, move 100 feet right and climb a spectacular right-facing dihedral. Crack thins out and climb 20 feet higher to belay amongst boulders. Gear to 1" 5.9 FA - Geoff Archer & Bob Tarver 2/91

Route C: This route climbs the thin, pancake flake left of Route B. It is actually a continuation of the same crack and shares the same belay. Gear to 1" 5.7 FA - Geoff Archer & Bob Tarver 2/91

Route D: From atop the belay of routes B and C, look up and left to a short, widening crack. Starts as rattly fingers and widens to fists. Continue up the face above to a 2 bolt anchor/rappel. Gear to 3" 5.10 FA - Geoff Archer & Bob Tarver 2/91

Route E: From the base of Route D, climb around to the left about 50 feet to the base of this route. Climb a steep, fabulous black face on mostly sloper, friction holds. 4 bolts, questionable TCU below last bolt. Small stuff for anchors. Rap off from anchor atop Route D. 5.10b FA - Geoff Archer & Bob Tarver 2/91

We also climbed a left-slanting hand/fist crack on a west-facing crag located halfway back down towards the Ponderosa wall. This route is visible from atop Route E. Gear to 4" 5.9 FA - Geoff Archer & Bob Tarver 2/91 Dec 16, 2007
