Difficult lieback/jam moves reach the very steep left-facing corner with a seam in the middle. Extremely technical and challenging palming and stemming moves go over a bulge to a lower angle section with a finger sized crack. Near the top the climb steepens before the anchors.


This climb is on the northwest face of the Arid Piles formation. Approach from the northeast end and enter the 29 Palms Corridor. Scrambling over boulders within the corridor leads to the base of the route.


#000 C3's, small to medium brass and cams, and one 1" cam for protection.

 Bolted anchors (3/8") with rappel rings are at the top.
