The poster girl climb on the wall. The center most route, up the belly of Highlander Wall. Scramble up easy, lower angled rock, to the first bolt. Climb up the steep corner (crux) gunning for the obvious break in the center of the cliff. A rest can be gained here before tackling the upper half of the improbable-looking wall. Climb up the overhanging wall directly above, finding hidden dishes and edges as you go. If you're lucky, you will gain the lip of the top of the cliff. Hand traverse right to a two bolt and chain anchor.
