The climb is on the far right edge of the headwall to the right of Right Corner. Start in the mine shaft underneath the obvious wood brace in the chimney. Chimney up to the wood brace, sling it, and then climb up and left to the base of the dihedral. Step to the right and climb the well-protected hand cracks to the top. Belay from either a tree stump or a larger tree trunk.


The farthest climb on the right, starting beneath the obvious wood brace in the mine shaft.


A long sling for the wood brace and a few small to medium cams. If top-roping, long slings or a short rope are needed for anchoring to a tree or tree stump 15 feet from the edge.

It looks like a large rock smashed the thick wooden brace, with only a few slender slivers remaining, which means it is no longer available for protection if leading and increases the rating from PG13 to R (or even X).
