Looking west on Temptation.


West facing dihedral with hand crack. Climb thirty feet up to ledge and finish off on face to your left.


From parking spot/campground head east down shallow gully to the river. A trail will lead you down. On top of shallow cliffs over the river size up this area, and in the middle you will find Temptation. It is easiest to find Temptation by finding its partner, Aztec Camera (face with an obvious crack up the middle), 10 feet left of Temptation.


Pro up to #2 will suffice. Can make a strong anchor on top with protection.
