Climb the central pillar of the lesser wall, formed by the two deep hand cracks. This climb uses a combination of face holds, smearing and jamming. The crux is the set of finishing moves, which can too easily be avoided. This route does not have a set of anchors but can be TR’d from the anchor for Cavity Search – be aware of the possibility for a nasty swing if you fall. Garbage Can could also be done as a lead on gear but works best as a highball. Walk to the left or right, then descend the easy chimney to the base.
