Just uphill from Extension wall, past Verdon Face and the next downclimbable dihedral is Pete's Gritstone Wall (PGW), which faces west. The V5 version starts on low sloping laybacks and pops above the lip to some slightly more positive holds and a thin pocket and edge topout. A sit down start goes at V10. I can only imagine the low start going with cold weather, maximum friction, insane body control and sloper power. Highly recommend the stand up line, but it also is much more friendly in colder conditions (shady morning - midday depending on season).
For the somewhat exposed short ledge of rocky talus a pad and spotter are recommended.
