Description 

Follow the overhanging curving crack of the thick left-facing flake, continue as that turns straight, and finish via easy low-angled terrain toward top. Lots of big ants on the rock behind the tree, sap below that tree, and a cactus at the start. There are some boulder scrambling to get to the base, so add that to the fairly short approach from the road.

Location 

Left-facing curving flake in front of a tree, located on the right side of a small bulbous buttress on the lower southwest end of X-Factor Dome.

Descent 

Down scramble to climber's left. Seems possible to descend to climber's right also, but left was prob quicker back down to the base.

Protection 

Pro to 3.5", gear anchor.
