A mix of Dylan Thomas and Somerset Maugham.
Start about 5 meters up from the start of Grrr-Amp just below a steep arÍte/overhanging corner. Clamber up 15 ft to a flat ledge and reach high (or stickclip) 1st bolt. Gym like moves to big holds beyond the lower crux. From the large ledge after the crux enjoy the fun climbing to the top following the arÍte going left and right, clipping bolts in the 5.9 range. Finish at the same anchor for Grrr-Amp. 11 bolts total. 30 meters

This and the rest of Geezer Wall are well protected and an enjoyable option for "average" climbers, especially on summer mornings. Note that one can rather easily access the Redrum anchors from the this climb. In fact, it's tempting to swing out and share a hold or two with Redrum around the 7th or 8th bolt, but staying left of the arete definitely provides the path of least resistance and insures that the crux remains the opening moves.

Nice rock, fun start, but eases way back. Nonetheless, would repeat.

Bouldery start with ledge fall potenial until you reach the 3rd bolt. Weird run out (around bolt 4) to a good stance, then you can clip 2 bolts,from the same stance. Strange. Also this should be listed on the Redrum Wall seeing how Redrum is 15 feet to the right.

Wow this climb was exciting and fun the opening moves were a lot harder than 5.10b considering climbs on challange buttress and The glass ocean walls it was easily 5.11a but since the opening moves were the only hard moves on the climb I would call it 5.10d. If you fall making the moves to the second bolt you can break your legs or ankles on the ledge you start on. The third bolt is missing you can posibly place a .5 camelot, but the run out is easy enough climbing.
