Good rock quality for the area on this one pitch route. A top rope can easily be placed from approaching the anchors above via the rim trail.

This climb follows a small right facing feature that peters out two thirds of the way up. Begin by clipping a bolt and climbing the left side of the feature. Climb up and switch to the right side of the feature. Aim for a block that looks loose from the bottom but is actually way solid. The climbing is very pumpy to this point but eases off above the block.
