Crux is about 20 feet up or there about. A few fun traverse moves up top, then up and over left side of formation. Horizontal cracks protect well. Real fun climb!!! (I have a feeling it has been done either Solo or via a TR because it is sort of "right in your face obvious"... None the less, it's well worth doing.

this thing is flat out fun!!!...


Route is just to the left of "Eyes of Amber" (I think...)

Rap off of exisiting Anchors 20 feet east, above "Water Mocassin"


Two bolts and small to medium cams, no anchors. Use formation on top to sling or build anchor off of.
