Description 

starts on one lower 40ft peak, moves right across and up. crossing from the first little peak over to the main crux crack, which is about 30 ft of stiff climbing with nothing but jams. a small ledge after that, then some more cracks between rocks heading left, there is a sling on a rock, the only way out for me solo on a 60m rope. from there another stiff 40 ft crossing the "pyramid" on the rt side to the tree. great trad placement, placing in the crack is wild.

Location 

Right and down from "Venkman", basically around the most southern arete to this area. Don't go too far, or you will go around the rock. There should be one more rocky arete to your right,. This is between the 2 southern/eastern aretes. Tje start can be flexible, and the crack is unmistakable. The pyramid is obvious once you are up the crack.

Protection 

There are no bolts. It is purely a trad area. Use a sling on the "duckhead" rock at top of "Suzy Triangles" this one tree, and a sling at top of pitch one on "Spice Drops", before the triangle. Bring whatever, completed it with a small and large set of nuts, 2 Black Diamond #1 cams, and a 0.5, 1, and 1.5 set of Wild Country Friends.
