BETA PHOTO: Penstemon.

Description 

Start in the right side corner of the alcove. Near the top of the low-angle section is a loose cube of rock. While it moves, it could not be removed with a crowbar. Above the cube, stem your way up the steeper crux corner. At the top of the corner, left and right options are possible, and they are of similar difficulty.

Location 

This ascends the right corner of the alcove. Penstemon is not visible/shown in the beta photo.

Protection 

A standard rack to a two bolt/chain anchor. Placements may not be obvious. The anchors are reachable by lowering from Doc’s Holiday’s anchor, or climbing across from Black Bart’s anchors.
