When closed, the closures include the named rock formations and the areas surrounding the base of the formation. This includes all climbing routes, outcroppings, cliffs, faces, ascent and descent routes, and climber's access trails to the formation.
Areas not listed are presumed to be open. These closures will be lifted or extended as conditions dictate.

From the Fang Ledge, which can be accessed via Osiris, George's Tree, Sports Pages, Road Kill, Pseudo Wallet Eater, or even routes as far right as Fat City, find the shallow inset that has the 3rd pitch belay as for George's Tree. Climb up and out left from that into increasingly flaring and increasingly difficult jams (crux) for 20 meters to turn up and over a false summit and then climb another 20-30 meters of lower angle rock with hand-sized gear to reach a belay ledge below a 10 meter headwall. Belay here on small cams and medium stoppers, or continue up and over for a full 70m rope length to the summit on finger and thin-hands cracks (left) or a wider crack (right, take 4" gear) and belay on the summit.
Walk off as for other summit routes, first NE to a gully that is taken down to join The Cave Exit top-out area, then down that scramble/trail.
