This is the buttress upstream (west) of Interiors Wall by a few miles. It is so called because the day I was there a couple of folks were camped at the base and the gal's chosen ensemble was a bikini and cowboy hat and boots. (Anyone who knows the real name please feel free to tell me, and I will update.)

Getting There 

Drive past Interiors Wall Area about 4 miles. Look for a 4WD road up a wash that you can drive up or just as good park on the main road and walk. Easy 10 minute approach.

Climbing Season

For the Escalante Canyon area.

This a straight in crack. It is not 5.0, but MP does not allow for blank rating.Eds. the consensus rating on this is screwed up by the 5.0 entry. It appears this is in the 5.8-5.9 difficulty range based upon 2 entries....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Is there actually any bata on this area? I realized that it has been posted for about 4 years and nothing has changed than the horrible original post beta. Please let me know.
