Description 

A Wonderful Life... How strange it is. Start on a very pronounced finger crack 2 systems left of Resurrection. Work your way up to a shallow, overhanging, left facing dihedral passing three bolts. Once you reach the stem box that puncuates the top half, be ready to move and place thin gear on the run.


Location 

On the far right side of the Right Wall. Left of Resurrection. Obvious finger crack which is at the moment shrouded by branches.


Protection 

Plenty of small/medium TCUs, small/medium wires, and Lowe Balls.

This route would be perfect without the series of sharp, detached blocks towards the top. Has anyone tried removing the bottom one?

I'm sure Dan and I looked them over thoroughly, but this was also before we started dropping blocks like these. I might have a chance to take a closer look sometime soon, but if you are feeling industrious Ryan go for it. Just be safe, and start at the top if you can....
