A tricky, crimpy line that is rewarding once figured out.

Start up at the right side of the ledge system avoiding a bit of moss as you make your way to the first bolt.

Up and over onto the uppermost ledge, and then clip the lowest bolt on the vertical section from the ledge.

Head up on crimps and the occasional sidepull, looking for the correct body position to use some of the more obtuse holds.


The right-most line on a wall with a triple-ledge system at the wall's base (as opposed to a double-ledge system on the wall downhill). The wall is uphill from the original Adjective wall that is encountered immediately after leaving the streambed.

The walk to the wall is approximately 7 to 10 minutes from the stream bed.

The wall is bordered on each side by a 15-foot evergreen tree; the wall downhill with which this wall might be confused is wider and bordered by 50-foot evergreens.


6 bolts, anchors.

A 2-foot sling on the first bolt is good.
