|Sport Utility Wall
The line of bolts that climbs the roofs on the South face. Hard pumpy climbing with a great rest ledge. Stay out of the gully to the right and work those fingers. The clips are pretty tough. When you get to the rest ledge, you think the climb is over, but there is one tricky sequence left. Not pumpy so much as balancey. This is the best route on the wall.
2 bolts for the anchors, with a not too hard lean over to get the top-rope set up. Be safe. Or bring 6 additional draws for the route.

Don't blow the fifth clip or you might break your leg on the rest ledge. I always seem to be out of shape when I attempt to redpoint this climb.

Keep hiking the slate past it and you can easily top-rope it.
