Description 

Start from the ledge (15' above the ground) at the bottom of the lower slab. Head up right or left. Head past the small overhang and then the big one. Piton (if still remaining) was placed in 1981.

Location 

Obsession Area. 1/2 mile south of the north junction of Cliff Dr. and U.S. 41. The Obsession Block is obvious from the road. See pictures. Hike up and left of the tailings piles. Hike up and left to the top of the hill and find the top of Obsession. Or hike lower and access the bottoms of many climbs on the area.

Protection 

Trad. Natural anchors and pro placement.
