Description Suggest change

Approach Thin Wall's east side. Toward the left (south) end of the east side, near the wall's highest pint, you will see a broad 3-foot roof with two tiers split by a crack.

At the far left end of this roof, a right-facing dihedral runs from the ground up to intersect it. Child's Play is ascended via this dihedral to the roof. At the roof make a long move to the right and then pull through the roof at a crack and finish the route by completing the crack and face above.

The route is rated 5.10d in the Vogel guide, but I felt that the route was on par or easier than several 5.10c routes I have done at J-tree.

Like most of the lines at Thin Wall, this one can be TR'd by setting an anchor from above. And odds are that one will be already there when you arrive if it is a weekend.

Traditionally, the route is considered a TR anyway.
