Located on the Triple Slab Buttress. This is the second major formation right of Three Fingers Canyon. Drive 6.1 miles from I-70 on the main dirt road, and then turn right onto the high clearance road that leads to Three Finger canyon. After 1.7 miles turn right and park. Directly in front is the Triple Slab Buttress, and Jack Russell climbs the central slab. See Photo, route B.
