This is the nasty corner just to the right of Chouinard's crack. There are many bushes growing out of it which make the climb sort of awkward. I would say passing the big bush in the middle is the crux. Even though it is a really easy grade, it is fun climbing. Look for the piton close to the ground on the way up, belay from this spot. You may want to clip in to the piton while you belay.


Stay on the right side of the gully, close to the wall as you hike up. When it splits, go to the right and you will see Chouinard's Crack and the Dirty Corner. Its quite a scramble up to the piton at the belay ledge. We rappelled from the piton to get down.


There is a piton right before the big bush. I used bigger cams and a couple medium sized nuts. There is a slung tree (really large sage brush) at the top to rap/lower from.
