Description

The route is just down below the area favorites Tombstone, Die Heeda Rule, and Brother Jug. Locate Tombstone, then head slightly back down the hill (20 feet) to see this clean, diamond-shaped face just around the first arete to the right. Climb up and right, on a line of least resistance, then left to the center of the face and then up and left to a sloping ramp. Pull onto the ramp and make some moves to a vertical face then to the right and up a corner. There was a bolt somewhere on the route, but it didn't help much with the nerves.

The route will go "direct." I next TR'd it by starting up and left from the ground directly to the center of the diamond-shaped face, then straight up through the ramp and directly to the top. This was hard 5.11 and very insecure. I would NOT lead this variation.

Protection

This is S/VS. The route is probably more enjoyable ar a Toprope. Very little pro is available, so you can take it all and just stare at it most of the time- or TR.
