You can use chimney technique, or stem around it. Fun route


at the left of center of north wall. The chimney is the right side of a leaning column that is about 40' right of Microcosm
There is one lonely large fir or pine that survived the fire down slope.
Beware of rattlesnakes, we ran into several on our way, one big one in the middle of the trail.


rack to 3", maybe a #4 too. The book describes using anchor on the left- Farewell to Vegas. I think we went straight up to the top.

This route was more fun than it looked. Involved a lot of stemming and some chimney moves.There are plenty of horizontal cracks and pockets to place smaller gear then near the top you can place a #4 or #5 in the crack
