Description 

The "classic" line on cracked wall. Just to the right of 60-seconds follow up the shield to the "bung-hole" mono and traverse onto the tiger stripes. Finish at either 60-seconds or Only Way anchors.


Protection 

4 bolts and one #2 WC rock b/w the second and third bolts if you like

If you want to finish at the 60 Seconds anchor, bring a few larger pieces to 3.5"

From the last bolt, there is actually some quite good 5.7ish climbing to the 60 Seconds anchor. If you don't want to climb Western Airlines, you can climb up the first half of 60 Seconds, then cut out right (you will be directly across from the last bolt on WA) and continue as above.

Unless you're solid at the grade, bring a small nut to slot in a constriction after the second bolt. The "bung-hole" mono is a very insecure and strange hold.

I disagree with Richard... if you use a nut it makes the awesome fingerlock less bomer and the move up to the next bolt is definately not 5.11... as long as your belayer is on top of things you shouldn't fall that far onto the second bolt (though i've never fallen on that move)
