At "The Boneyard" just left of Catfish Stanglehold. Scramble up to a large ledge. A # 8 Hexcentric can provide additional safety to reach the first bolt. Continued moderate climbing leads to the first roof, and the third bolt. Sustained steep climbing passing two more bolts and one more roof. There might be several ways off climbing past the second roof, traversing to the left or to the right to easier terrain. Finish at a set of chains.

Due to the high angle, it is advisable to have a second remove the draws, and make their descent via rappel. There are some loose rocks at the roof and large loose blocks further to the left of the roof but possibly within the reach, so belayer and other members of the party should not stand underneath. The crux of the climb becomes ascending the roof without pulling or stepping on the loose stuff.
