BETA PHOTO: route topo
A series of broken cracks that merge about three meters up on the right side of Music Hall reveal the start of Wedding Route. Getting off the ground and up to the shallow right-facing dihedral is the crux. Beyond this the climbing is about 5.5. Follow the dihedral, with intermittent horizontal cracks, until it disappears, then continue up through blocky bands, grassy ledges, and beautiful quartzite patches towards the large, obvious ledge. This route will have endless traffic on any kind of decent weekend day, so either get here early or prepare to stand in line.
Approach as for Music Hall. After you dip down towards the sea, passing under the Whale's Head, and rise back up, you will see the large alcove of Recital Hall about seven meters above the large platform. Wedding Route starts just to the left of this. Or, the route farthest to the right on Music Hall wall. Faces northeast.
~10 quickdraws (some long ones for near the top). 2-bolt anchor. Be sure to use the one on the right, so the other can be used for other routes. Set an equalized anchor for top-roping.
