Description 

  • 3/24/14 - this route, formally listed as unnamed, was given a proper name

Begin on some slabby ledgy features, rock gradually overhangs as you boulder up under a small roof, reach up and over roof to finger crack, jam your way up to pedestal stance. Rather than step forward into the base of the wide dihedral-ish chimney feature, climb the shouldery feature that makes up the left side of this dihedral (the climbing is more pleasant). As you ascend, trend toward the dihedral interior, reaching it where a handcrack is formed. Stem and pull your way up through this to the top. The dihedral shape sort of breaks down, becomes less distinct, near the finish. Find the anchors on the right side.

Not great, aesthetically...but good, scenic.....and decently long


Location 

On the right edge of Wolf Wall (very near where the approach trail meet the cliff, hence the name), spy a section of thin finger crack overhead about 12 feet or so.


Protection 

standard Steele rack

a pair of Fixe hangers with rings have been added to the top of this route
