Like many Joshua Tree "offwidths," grainy rock allows a mix of techniques to get up pitch 1. When you reach the dike of "I Can't Believe It's a Girdle," belay. On pitch 2, traverse left about ten feet and climb up past two bolts to the top.


This climb starts in the obvious vertical crack between the northern and central "towers" on the west face.


Large cams for pitch one, 2 bolts (3/8", 1/4") on pitch 2
