Very cool climb on the right side of window rock. Very noticable crack splitting a slab under a large 6ft roof. Overcome the first bulge, walk up cracked slab, and enjoy the juggy overhanging roof to the anchors.

Location 

Right side of window rock. No fixed anchors up top.

Protection 

up to .75 camalot, one bolt under roof and two bolted anchor

May want to update this entry, there are actually bolted anchors on top, with chains. They are past the roof up a short slabby section. Also, the crack can take up to #1 at one point. It's probably safer to put a sling around the horn sticking out sideways at the top of the roof since if you slip getting out of the roof you'll be hitting the slab pretty hard.
