Two routes in an area with a lot of potential. Faces South, and a bit sheltered from the wind.
Approach as for Southern Comfort and exit the trail to the left (North) before reaching SoCo. Traverse the North slope of the alluvial fan towards Done For Already and the Hot Gates.
Cross the wash and walk uphill and left until you can see up a step an narrow canyon with a ten foot face guarding its entrance. Enter through an oak tree on the left edge of the face.
