This is the small summit on the left side of the canyon (in front of Black Velvet Peak from the parking lot). Of course, small is relative here as its NE face is probably 700' high in places. Routes on this face tend to be quite shady and can be very cold on windy days, or in the winter.
Walk up the main drainage and head left ot the base of the wall, depending on the route. Approaches to all routes on this wall are less than 1/2 hour, and many are popular.

This climb is so well bolted, the cruxes could easily be yarded through (A0 style).Anyhow, get to the route by first finding Wholesome Fullback.
