Half of this pillar is below ground level (if a ground level can be defined here), you start from the bottom of "The Pit".

Getting There 

On the way from The Tombstones to The Cornerstones, take a right turn. About half way from The Tombstones to The Cornerstones as the crow flies.

Rock Climbing Photo: Funeral Pyre (5.11b), The Cemetery

Funeral Pyre 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  California : High Desert : ... : The Pit
Starting from a pit climb a steep dark slab past two bolts to gain a horizontal break and then move left to clip the third bolt at the base of a bulging patina-spattered face. Trending left past the last two bolts is the crux as you encounter thin edges and a mounting pump on the way to the anchors.Would be fantastic if longer but unfortunately it's a little on the short side....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
