BETA PHOTO: West face of the Tombstone Rock

Description 

Several variations exist and vary in difficulty from V3 to V5 depending on the starting point.
Start standing in the center of the west face off a righthand side pull. Climb straight up past crimps and gain the thin crack with the left hand. Finish straight up - this version is around easy V4 - sit start on the sloping jug and do the same finish makes it about V5.
There is also a left version that starts on the left slab edge and traverses right at ground level into the thin crack. Follow the crack and top out. This ones a bit easier than the center version, maybe hard V3

Location 

At the bottom of the scramble down from the "tombstone" trail. As soon as you arrive at the bottom of the cliff band look east to see the west face of The Tombstone Boulder.
