This west facing route is adjacent to a large yucca plant. Accessing the first two bolts requires difficult moves (crux) above the yucca. A fall below the second bolt would leave you impaled on the "Spanish bayonet" (stick clipping is an option). Continue past one more bolt and horizontals to a large ledge. Fun but short (2 out of 5 stars).
QD's for three bolts plus a few small TCU's for horizontals. Medium / Large cams and a lengthy cordelette are necessary for an anchor. Descent is a walk off.
