This wall on the right side of Fairangel Gap had some existing trad lines and according to an old Hatcher guide is called Tin Can Rock. The previous lines here were established by Bill Richards It is a beautiful black and gold speckled solid granite that is ranges from slightly overhanging to steep slab.
