Joy Weber leading out into space on pitch 4 of Wil...
4 pitches, 5 rappel stations:
P2: 5.9+ Bolted layback crack; it's sharp!
P3: 5.9+ Don't stop at the extra rappel station.
P4: 5.10a Crux pitch. Step out over the void and pull to the top of razor ridge.
Make sure you look through hole in the wall and see the other side of the next canyon before you get out on the last pitch.
Half way up the canyon on the right side. The route starts next to a table-sized rock on the path.
Bolts every 10-15 feet. 60m rope will get you up and down.

this is a cool route and a unique location in the park. there are a few other worthwhile routes in lobo canyon - so it is worth the hike. the route is not as free of sharp vegitation as other walls - plus the rock is considerably sharper. i remember lots of fossils in the rock on this route. the last pitch is great and exposed. more of a boulder problem with exposure.

The first couple moves of the last pitch are stellar. The rest of the route is also very good.

Ooooh yeah, leading that last pitch is key. One of the highlights of the park...

Great climb, last pitch is fun, but short. Hike to climb is longer than you think...just keep counting the bolt lines and you will eventually get to the climb.

One of the nicest routes I've climbed. Fourth pitch is amazing.

Good route overall. That last move out onto the last pitch really makes it. Took me a minute to convince myself that I was going to be able to step out and stay on...
