|The Brown Wall
Twin cracks after the roof that leads you up the slab to the anchors. You can see that the starting dihedral was a little slimy that day, but surprisingly it had no affect on the climb. By the way, I just made up the name of this climb- I'll change it when its officially named.
Mostly small cams and wires, with a few larger pieces for the bottom half/roof (size 3 cam at the biggest.) Anchors at top.

The route is called New Vector and shares a common start and anchor with the finger crack route to its left - Fractured Fairytale. Bring RPs and small TCUs for the technical and sustained, upper, tips crack section. The ledge at the first roof has a really sharp edge, be sure & place a directional above it for seconding/toproping.
