Located just north and slightly west of Punk Rock about 100-200 meters. The formation has a north summit with "Planetismal" 5.9 in the sun on the S.E. face. It is a straight in hand crack with a slight zig-zag near the top. On the south summit are "The Towering Inferno" 5.11c * and "The Poseidon Adventure" 5.11b *. These two are in the shade all day.

Getting There
