This route traverses to the far right side of the cliff, following the obvious roof-ish, horizontal crack until you attain the arete (see main picture for Heart Wall). To the right side of the arete is a crack system. To the left are some patinas.

The crux is a somewhat slippery hand crack about 2/3 of the the way up (the most vertical section of the arete) that fades into face moves over a bulge. Expect some vegetation.


This is the furthest right climb on Heart wall, following the obvious arete/crack system to the top (see Heart Wall picture- arete on the right.


Gear to 3" should suffice. Cracks seemed to be somewhat flaring. TCUs and offset TCUs are handy for a couple placements
