From the little spur trail off the old road, this is the right most of 3 routes encounted immediately when reaching the rock. Climb the juggy water trough, with a crux at the first bolt. Interesting climbing involves jug hauling and even some chimney technique. Rap from Unknown 2's anchors, with one rope.
4 or 5 bolts

This is a really fun climb with a few weird moves. Last time I climbed it was in July 2009 and the anchors were loose and pretty scary. They need to be replaced.
