The route follows the only wandering crack to the top. The crack starts off at 2 1/2" and gets smaller as you go. Gear is required for anchors above.

As of 2nd ascent on 3/11 it still needs cleaning. The more the better. It is a very fun route with a couple of good rests for the new .9 leader.


Hike down the "Wall Street" gully and turn left.


Gear to 2 1/2 inches. Lots of smaller stuff.

Hi Lee and all who have read this post.
Any and all cracks on Wall Street, all three sides of it, have been lead by lots of people over the last 30 plus years that I know of. I won't say I did anything first here as it is so popular of a wall. Hopefully you meant another direction to take. If it had some dirt in it in March of '09, it probable washed down this past winter. Lots of climbers don't waste time with unnecessary cleaning, me included, which is why I leave it there, I would rather be climbing than cleaning.
Glad you do take the time to check out some of the routes.
