|Upper Washbowl Cliff
I'm only describing the quality first pitch here. Lawyer and Haas make it a point to indicate that the upper pitches don't really get climbed much. From what I could see, it's clear why.
The first pitch offers incredible face climbing with a tricky crux.
Climb up to the first bolt and trend up and left to the forth bolt. A tricky and thin sequence left brings you to the small, shallow left-facing corner/edge and the last bolt. Make a hard move to the ledge (crux) and around the arete and up easier terrain to the fixed anchor.
Start: 20 feet to the left of Hesitation below a line of left-trending bolts to the arete.
Descent: Rappel from the two-bolt anchor
5 bolts, two-bolt anchor

If possible avoid climbing at the end of the day, the sun will be setting right in your eyes on the side of the face.

Very nice edging. You will wish this kept going to the top of the cliff.
