The corner system on the right side of the picture...

Description 

This route doesn't compare to Buckey Blue in climbing quality but it is a fun route to continue up after topping out on Buckey Blue. Stay in the corner that closely resembles Buckey and stop when you get to a small tree with some really old webbing on it (140ft). One could probably traverse left from this tree and continue up to the top of the formation. The climbing is easy and straight forward but it's the cacti you have to worry about, in some places you may need to place gear just to keep your rope from getting dragged through a million thorns.

Location 

To get to the base of this route you can either top out on Bucky and walk to the obvious next corner system across the small canyon, or walk up the canyon on the right side of the Rabbit Ear Slabs. Climbing Bucky is more enjoyable.

Protection 

The pro is good and it's easy to find placements. Once you reach the tree you can either rap from that tree or traverse right on some vegetation to get to another tree with some webbing and a rap ring(20ft). The rappel from either tree would be about 130-140 feet but it might be possible to find a bush on the far right and just use one rope
