I don't usually give routes bomb ratings, but this route deserves one. You make a mantle move to the first bolt, and then head up a thin crack above and a little to the right. You can place small gear here. There is a thin crack above, but I moved left to a vegetation-filled crack and moved up to the ledge. Knowing there was no pro to be had above, I made an anchor here. You could climb to the top, but there is no pro and no anchor to be had. You can tunnel back through a thin slot which leads to the top. The route is not very fun.


This is the leftmost route on the crag and is left of Fat Head. You can see the single bolt from the ground. From the very top, walk to the right to descend. From the bushy ledge, if you belay here, go back through a tight slot to the top, and then walk off to the right.


One bolt and a standard rack to a #2 Camalot. There are no anchors. It is hard to build an anchor on top. You can build a anchor on a small, bushy ledge before the top. I did this with a nut and a #1 and a #2 Camalot.
