A short distance left of "Middle of the Road" is a left facing dihedral. Just left of this dihedral is a beautiful straight in finger crack in a very shallow left facing corner that begins about 15' above the talus. Pitch 1, 5.9: Climb this finger crack until it disappears. Now you will find a thin hand crack just to the right. Continue to a set of anchors at the bottom of the second pitch. Pitch 2, 5.10d: Move up and right along a hand crack that pierces the tiered roof. Rappel from the "Weather or Not" anchors (two-90'rappels). The first pitch is very worthy. The second pitch is quite strenous and very airy.
