This is full value, desert crack fun. Climb a short overhang to OW to grovelling squeeze to reasonable chimney.


It is the huge crack behind enormous detached block to the right of the Interiors Wall area. This is hard to miss.


Big cams, Big Bros to 5, run out 30-40 feet to top.

Actually Chuck led it, Craig was certainly there that day taking pictures of Chuck climbing this monster using the very first generation of Big Bros. One of those pictures was used as a ad for the climbing magazines. I'll scan one of those ads and post it here.

Indeed it was Chuck who led it. I belayed him, and Craig was there that day.
