Description 

This side of the formation is vertical or just less than, and split by a number of cracks - the Peyote Cracks, which offer short but fun routes with the crux at the bottom which means these are often soloed as well as lead. Some of the better climbs here include The Right Peyote Crack (5.8), Middle Peyote Crack (5.9) and Left Peyote Crack (5.10d).

Getting There 

See the Peyote Cracks Formation page for detailed approach information.
