Description 

The Tombstone Pit is a small, somewhat enclosed area that is home to seven routes which are found on the on the north and south faces of some small "pinnacles". Routes range from 5.7 - 5.10d with most being in the 5.10 range.

This may help in visualizing the routes here as well - the anchors for the route Better Luck Next Time (5.10d) are actually located on the other side of the block with Firepower (5.10d).

Getting There 

The Tombstone Pit is located slightly southheast of the the Claim Jumper Wall, and approched by either walking along the base of Skyy Slab or by scrambling up from the eastern end of the Claimjumper Wall (easier without packs).
