Finding this one was a challenge. You have to hike up and to the right(north) of ZMBM like you're climbing to reach the chains. There's a little draw that leads to a little plateau. Awesome place to gain confidence for me as I'm learning to lead. Super simple route that is quick and easy. Very fun!
