This fun climb goes up the face just right of a crescent crack ("Yellow Peril") on the left portion of the south face. Climb brown, featured rock to a bolt. Continue up slab passing six more bolts. Cracks on top for placing anchors. A fixed pin and bolt rappel station is located on a block, down and left.

This route is rated 5.8 in Vogel's Joshua Tree West guide, but it's more like 5.6.


7 bolts, gear to 2.5" for anchors

Used a #2 camalot for an anchor but a 1 and/or 3 or a big stopper would have worked well too.
