This is a somewhat contrived route that squeezes between Lower Fall Wall and 5.11 Crack. It begins by climbing 5.11 Crack to the first bolt and then traverses left to another bolt (crux). Head up to a third bolt, a short headwall and right-facing dihedral. Follow this dihedral to the Fall Wall belay ledge. Rappel.

Even though I've listed this at 5.9+, be aware that this is a Vedauwoo "old school" rating; a more modern rating would probably be 5.10a.


Use the same start as 5.11 Crack, atop the clamshell boulder.


Quick draws and a light rack with smaller pieces.
