When closed, the closures include the named rock formations and the areas surrounding the base of the formation. This includes all climbing routes, outcroppings, cliffs, faces, ascent and descent routes, and climber's access trails to the formation.
Areas not listed are presumed to be open. These closures will be lifted or extended as conditions dictate.

The route starts in the large left-facing corner on the right side of the rock (Cackle Crack). Branch out left in a tricky 5.11 crack after about 10 feet. Reach a small ledge, rest, and continue up a right-angling seam, with some fixed pitons (crux).
Rappel from a fixed anchor or continue on Cackle Crack. You can scramble up to a ledge below the summit block to set up a toprope off of gear, but it is almost as easy and much nicer to lead Cackle Crack to the same spot.
