Insect Parts is located on the easternmost wall of the Major Mass. The climb starts at the ledge about 25 feet up. Access the start by climbing up to the first ledge of Sunken Slab or Prosperity. Follow the crack up the slanted rock, finishing on the upper section of Sunken Slab.

I found that existing left is pretty good.

Nick, do you mean around the Keyhole to the left, or through the Keyhole to the left?

As I read Tom's description, it sounds like he is describing a route that starts on "Prosperity" or "Darkest Hour", then from the big shelf below the Keyhole, crosses over "Sunken Slab" and up to the right.

No, I don't think this route has anything to do with the keyhole. Doesn't it end as sunken slab does? I exited left where the dotted line ends in the pic.
