This three pitch face climb is more characteristic of Middle Cathedral Rock than it is of the rest of Tahquitz. It starts at an inobvious place, about 100 feet to the right of Switchbacks. Pitch 1 (5.9+) has several tricky sequences, ending at a two bolt belay. The crux of the climb is near the start of pitch 2, with steep friction and small edges. Pitch 3 (5.10B) has a difficult mantle and some thin face moves. Easy climbing from here leads to Lunch Ledge.
