Description 

The route is to the right of the actual Desert Shield Buttress. There is an big chimney at the rim with a big black streak coming out of the bottom. Climb the right facing corners up to the chimney then up the chimney for 2 pitches. The route finishes inside the maw, blocked by a huge roof that is way wide. Rap straight down (not on route the whole way) Easy route, only need a few pins and great position, pitch 2 and 3 are steep and fun. Oh and before somebody freaks, there is a drilled hook on P2... sue me

Location 

Way right of Desert Shield buttress under the big chimney at the rim. Start up a ramp to the left of of a big right facing corner. At the top of a ramp (just past old belay from previous attempt) go up the very nice thin crack to an anchor under a roof.
