On the left side of the west face a wide lieback leads to a step right into a clean thin crack that jogs left at the top.

A fun little route that gets lots of sun and doesn't see much traffic despite it's proximity to the Atlantis area.

[Hide Comment] Great in the afternoon sun. This is a great route to lead, as it looks harder than it really is. Nut placements are solid, as are thin cams up high. Walk off to climber's right gets you down... Then go do Aigulle de Joshua Tree! Jan 27, 2004
