An eliminate worth doing if you're in the area.  SDS on crimps, go to the rail, than head up the right side of the face via a small pocket while avoiding the ledge out left and arête to the right.


Faces away from the trail below the big Brown Slab boulder.  It is located nearly at the bottom of the canyon.  Could be used as a warm-up area if hiking in from the lower parking.
