A classic desert pitch. A little bit of everything: chimney, fists, off-widths, hands, choss, loose flakes/rocks and roofs.
Climb an off-width/fists crack on left side of a pillar (the first ten feet are chossy) to the top of the loose block riddled pillar. Climb a squeeze up the left side of a "block" for 6-7 feet. From the top of the "block" climb hands and fists up a hollow flake in a chimney. From stance on top of flake climb a chimney with a flake (protectable with #3 Camalots) to a small roof. Pull through the roof with #3.5 Camalots and climb corner to flaring chimney. Climb flaring chimney (#4 Camalots) to a anchor of two drilled angles.
Careful pulling ropes on rappel, they have a tendency to get stuck.
Just right of Columbian Hit Man. This is right from the top of the approach trail.
I used (in Camalots) 1 #6, 1 #5, 5-6 #4, 3 #3, 1 #2, & 2 #1
