After a recent re-bolting effort, this climb will feel more enjoyable...if you're solid on 5.11. Nothing can be done about the ledge below the final be sure you have an attentive belay. Start up an interesting slab with 2 bolts. Continue along the right side of the formation until reaching a finger rail that traverses across it from right to left. Take the left arete to the ledge. Finish up the cruxy and beautifully colored headstone past 2 more bolts to the anchor. Deferred Prosecution is what you get when you car camp around Flagstaff during fire season.


Just left of Little League arete and grouping of large dead pine trees.


Bolts to anchor.
