Description 

This free-standing pinnacle of rock has no easy way to it's summit and features a handful of crack and face routes on it's various sides. The standout routes here include Left Bandana Crack (5.8), Right Bandana Crack (5.10a) and Kodiak Arrest (5.10d).

Getting There 

Starting from a large clearing southwest of the Pistol Whipped Wall head west and then northwest along a narrow dirt road (passing an old cement foundation on the left) which leads to a large circular parking area (used for the Mushroom Boulder, Bullet Hole Wall and The Ingot). The road continues west and then southwest passing some old mines on both sides of the road, and then uphill for a section until you reach another parking area near the east side of the crag.
