Then take the Mesquite canyon trail left(Southeast) for 0.2miles until in connects to the Feldspar trail then take another left(East) continue for a short distance until you encounter a sign marking a climbers trail. If unable to read the sign there will be a large boulder about the size of a house with an overhanging rivet ladder on the right. Continue on the well marked climbers trail until reaching a sign marking the Girlie Man climbing area. A short scramble will lead to the base of a slab area with several bolted lines.
