Me climbing the Far Left route.


A decent route that's a bit harder (and more interesting in my opinion) than left hand. I would say second or third easiest on the wall (not counting the arete). It's fairly sustained with decent, if sporadic holds. Focus on getting good positions with your feet and be ready to smear.


Starts about as far left as you can go before getting to the boulder (which is worth scrambling up to get a nice view of the area) and stays left for most of the climb. Once you get to the ledge, traverse right and end at the same spot as Left Hand. See Chris Owen's book "Urban Rock" for more details on the route.


Use the same anchor as for Left Hand. Just be prepared to swing a little if you come off the wall in the middle.

Free solo'd this route the other day and it was scary! Not prepared for barley any good holds at the end and having to just throw my legs over the ledge up top at the end to get over. Hahaha makes for a good story and was a full adrenaline rush. Next time will TR for sure. Thanks for putting a solid description on here about it.
