DescriptionSuperb climbing on great rock.
Pitch 1: Scramble up easy climbing and belay at a bolt anchor (40' left of Paisano Chimney). A short crack leads to 5.10c face climbing that takes you to the black intrusion. A series of difficult reaches presents the crux of the pitch on the intrusion. Above the crux, runout 5.10d climbing takes one into a left leaning arch. A belay may be set up in the arch using a bolt plus gear. Pitch 2: 5.10c climbing follows the arch to it's end, then up the easy face. A variation can also be done to the second pitch: from the belay step down a few moves, then pull over the arch and climb just above the lip of the arch (10d), tending left.
