Deus Ex Machin...

Description 

This route and Dyno Mart are at the upper right side of Midnight Rock, above The Vanishing. Approach from the top by walking past the small mine pit and then scrambling down to a large ledge. The climbs will come into view shortly after starting the descent. Scramble west down a steep gully and move over to a two-bolt anchor on a ledge atop a gigantic flake. Alternately, one can belay at the end of a large ledge with a tree on it, another 30 feet down. Climb up an overhanging face moving right at the top.

Good climbing, especially at the bottom, but maybe 25' long. Not sure it's worth the effort of getting to it.
