Climb easy rock to the right of the Key Crack, then chimney up through the center of the summit block and pop your head out like a gopher. More of a novelty climb than anything else, but still kind of cool. To descend go down a little to the west and wrap the rope around the pocketed triangular block and rap, (No rap slings required). A second rap can be made from a slung block on the next ledge down, (right of The Key Knob).


Only a couple of pieces, nuts, long slings
