A Midwestern colloquialism for "Why did you do that?"
"Because it was there."
This climb might make a great intro to O.W. climbing, except there are so many face holds that you never really climb the crack. At least it is a good corner for its very short length, but barely worth doing.
To descend walk/scramble off to the East.
At the left end of Wizard Rock, well left of the gully left of the left-most sport routes, there is a short buttress with a shallow right-facing corner. A tree grows out of this corner, perhaps 4 meters up, and beyond that point, a fist to wide crack goes to the top.
FA was free-solo, but a few wide cams would protect the climb just fine. A long sling (2'+) could beused on the tree stump, then maybe a #3 Camalot before reaching the wider crack above (old style #4 Camalot). The top would take a very large stopper or medium hex.
