This is a great line that would benefit from a little more traffic. A trad climbers sport route. Climb the large broken rock to gain the left slanting overhanging wide crack. Good hand jams deep in the crack to reach the high first bolt. Use the crack to gain the steep face and then figure out the sequence to get you through the corner. Face moves on dirty rock to the shuts. As of 7/07, there is a large dead tree looming above the final portion, it doesn't affect the climbing, but you will notice it!


This route is one of the most downstream routes on the White Wall.


4 bolts, a #5 camalot is perfect for protecting the moves to reach the first bolt.
