Crux right after the first bolt and last bolt of pitch one. Another crux at the first bolt of pitch 2. Start in a broken section 20 yards right of a big, pine tree. Gain solid rock and the first bolt. A mix of face climbing and a crack that is easily laid back on pitch one. Pitch 2 starts with a vertical section followed by 60 feet of fun, slabbing, rail climbing.
Park at paved pullout 0.6 miles west of the tube. A series of iron like slabs rise high to the east. The route is on a rounded, bulging wall on the far left, 50 yards left of Double O Slab. Approach via broken rock (class 4 in places) or hike the approach gully that is 0.4 miles west of the tube. From the top of the gully/ridge, trek south and up a long slanting ledge. Anchors next to a small tree. Rap to the base.
