A really clean and fun corner found above Dark Shadows, Peyote Power, etc., on Perception Tower. I've eyed this corner a number of times while guiding and finally had someone (Chris Chicoskie) who was interested in checking it out with me. I've heard from numerous people that it has been climbed before (during AMGA Rock Guide Exams), so I'm not claiming a first ascent. Also, it isn't so much a route, as it is a variation on a route. I just think it would be nice to put a name to this worthwhile variation to top out on the Mescalito.
This route is found on Perception Tower, which is the main ledge that many routes (most notably, Dark Shadows) finish on. When topping out, an obvious right facing corner is formed by a pillar leaning against the middle of the wall.
Whatever you used to get to the top of the route you climbed to get here will work. I placed gear to 2" while climbing, and found gear from 2" - 3" useful for the belay anchor.
