Step across the gap to some jugs and head up the wall on small but mostly good edges. A few sidepulls provide some variety.
Very pretty wall with seams everywhere, you just have to find the right ones.
This route is around the corner right of the undertow wall. It climbs the pretty red wall with many seams to the left of the off-width dihedral.

One of the easiest routes in the Lode, and still pretty stout for a 5.11 climber. It felt pretty doable for the first couple bolts. There are plenty of decent holds. But this thing just never. lets. up. I can hold my own pulling big roofs, but this sustained over-vertical stuff is relentless. By mid-route my arms were torched. I finally decided to throw in the towel after blowing the fourth clip in grand fashion, twice, and riding a pair of whistlers that each brought me ass-to-eyeballs with my belayer.
For Red regulars, I'm sure this is a cakewalk, but for the uninitiated, it's an eye opener.
