Description 

The crux is at the top, on the slab, clipping the anchors. This route is best done as a lead-follow because it starts on the arete and sort of curves around. Lowering off and to clean your draws creates a great deal of drag and a bit of a swing as you near the ground.

Left end of Walt's Wall.
