This is a 150 foot pitch just 30 feet south of Chockstone. This one does not get climbed much, it has lots of loose rock and vegetation, also the pro is there but very thin at bottom and hard to find before crux. Start just left of Xanadu in a right-facing corner with no pro, traverse left after 10 feet into another, more pronounced, left-facing corner and cruise to the top and turn roof on left (sketchy pro) and get into fist crack in a left-facing dihedral. Cruise up this crack past 2 trees to rotten ledge (crappy belay), then scramble north to gully between Rincon and top of West Ridge.
