Description 

Seldom visited is this shaded face with a minimal number of routes which include Wanna Bong (5.9) a clean 2-7" crack that splits the formation in one 120' sweep and Pinnacle Aerobics (5.11a) a tenuous friction route up a gradually steepening face.

Getting There 

Approach along the Saddle Rocks trail and then head left to the north side scrambling up boulders to the base. The approach takes about 30 minutes from the car.
