Reaching for a sidepull on Slacker Ken. August 201...
A newer route so not in the guidebook. The first bolt is low and protects you off the deck. Climb up to a nice ledge, where the second bolt can be clipped from a great stance. Continue up through a small bulge and to the anchors. Nice exposure for the grade as it climbs just left of, or on the arete. The climb can be done along the arete, or slightly left of it for two different variations.
Far left end of the Rad Wall on the arete. On the right side of the entryway to the corridor. This route is listed as #1 in the Rad Wall topo.
5 Bolts to chain anchors. Recommended to keep the first bolt clipped while cleaning to prevent an exciting swing.

I really enjoy the exposure and feel of this route. Very fun.
We belayed from the nice platform near the entrance to the "Tooth Canal" corridor. There's a belay bolt at ground level about 6 feet up the corridor that's helpful to clip a lighter belayer to for a heavier climber because there is good swing potential.
Also, when you are lowered by your belayer, please try to land on the trail and not in the eroding areas that have been blocked off.

Nice route. Good addition to the area. A little lichen keeps things interesting.

If you do this route, you MUST go out on the arete to get the full experience! It's awesome!
