While never to difficult, the second pitch contains some loose rock that could pose a problem with your belayer. Near the summit (or the end of the second pitch) you can choose from a variety of ways to read the top. Lots of loose rock awaits, choose wisely.


The route begins on the south side of the formation on a somewhat bushy ledge. First pitch trends left and then up the crack, belay below the obvious loose chockstones off right. Pitch 2 clears the chockstone and through a big jojoba bush and ends at the summit.
Downclimb or do a short rappel back to hole/tunnel you pass on the way to the summit and do a single rope rappel off a sturdy palo verde tree to the north.


Gear to #4 cams. No bolts on summit for belays or rappels.

West of the rappel route in a large pod is a moderately active beehive.
