Descent: Once topped out we walked left/north to the first major gully. There was some down scrambling until we reached a ledge where we turned left/south and made a move out onto "The Catwalk", an awesome feature that bridges over deep space to the "Angel of the Desert" spire. We continued trending south, around and behind that, and then down another gully, though some caves, and short down-climbs till we were shwacking down alongside the Eagle's Nest, and back to the base.
