I gave this one 4 stars for the area. Honestly I would probably give it 3 stars compared to other quartzite climbs i have done(like in Rock Canyon). The draw back of this one is that it is in the sun and its a long hike to get there. Start just right of the overhanging area. There i a small dihedral starting about 15-20 ft up. This is the climb. Start underneath the roof and climb into the dihedral. Clip the first bolt and continue up until you clip the third bolt. From here it is all trad until you get the chain anchors at the top. Crux is between the 1st and 2nd bolt just getting into the dihedral. Watch out it is steeper than it looks. However, the climbing eases at the top. Cheers
As I said it is just right of the Overhang on the main crag. You will see it, it is an obvious dihedral and you will see the bolt line in it.
Bring medium to small cams. I placed two medium sized ones before the first bolt and then 2 small ones(finger sized) on the face up above the third.
