Begin climbing in an obvious corner using stems and finger jams to a two bolt belay (5.9). "Step left climb directly up and through a large offwidth (5.10d)". Zach Orenczak, Fat Crack Country.


Northside of John's Tower. Scramble up a slab and traverse left (sketchy) till you reach the corner.

Just to the right of the Unnamed 5.9 and Scarlet Begonias.


Small nuts and cams for the first 5.9 pitch. I did not climb the OW section, but it looks like you would need some really large gear.
