|Upper Infirmary Slabs
AKA: Battery B.
This is a great pitch with a focus on overhanging fists and wider.
Find the beautiful, overhanging, splitter crack and launch immediately into the crux. Rattly fists and big reaches will get you through the crux and into a great rest. Continue up a easy chimney until you're stopped by a flared roof that continues out right, this is the awkward lesser crux. Fight through the flare, clip the chains and lower to the base.
If you're not up for the lead, this line is easily toproped off fixed anchors above.
From Panic in the Gray Room: to get to the base, trend right and up to find a not so obvious gully that leads to start of this crack. Or to rap in, find your way through boulders and slabs until there's a big licheny slab to your left. Now look downhill at the edge of the cliff for the anchors. Rap 50 feet.
A standard rack with an emphasis on #3-4.5 Camalots.

What is the climb on the left all about? Besides metal, obviously....

One on the left is mid 10, can't remember the name off hand though... something like Rumadrum or something like that (?)
