The last face route on the right side of the Short Wall. Easier than it looks and a fun route.


Large cams/hexes in the crack to the left.

To find this route, locate the most annoying cat-claw thorn bush in the park and try to get around it and onto the wall (physical crux). While climbing, remember that the complete lack of pro on the route means you'd fall into it if you peeled off (mental crux).

Probably over rated for the grade. Likely 5.7

Fun solo with the crux at the bottom.
