Bordering the northern edge of the main Pinnacles is this farily long and slender formation with a good variety of routes on almost all of it's sides.
The east face is shorter and slabbier and is home to such fun routes as Shantytown Swing (5.6), Wildrose (5.6), Golden Nugget (5.10a) and Out of Our Mines (5.10d).
The narrow north face features the popular Whiptail (5.9), Powder Keg (5.10a) and Short Fuse (5.10b).
Perhaps the best side of the crag, the taller west face has such gems as Panning For Gold (5.10b), Mighty Quinn (5.10c), Stake Your Claim (5.10d) and Long Arm Of The Law (5.11a).
Most easily approached from the northern parking area by walking east past the Incinerator Wall, at which point the wall comes into view and is obvious. The approach takes about 2-3 minutes and follows a well-defined trail.
Also reached from the vicinity of the Ampitheatre (Claim Jumper Wall, Gunsmoke Wall, Thunderbird Wall) by following any of several trails northeast to reach the formation. Plan on 3-5 minutes for this approach.
