This is the right to left traverse of Main Cliff. Starts at the end of the cliff and goes above the memorial plaque. Follows the natural line going up the Broadway block. From here it follows a line that ends up on top of the Wiessner slab.In my opinion this is not for the casual 5.8 leader due to poor gear.
The end of the route follows the obvious ledge system that ends on the far left side of the cliff. It shouldn't be a problem if you made it this far. The route has been soloed.NOT RECOMMENDED
The gear is good but there are potential ledge falls . The other thing to think about is the fact that the second is exposed to the same falls as the leader.
