High Interest starts at the right side of a level section at the base of the center wall. It takes a hand crack with a pod up to a traverse right into another hand crack.

This is a stout climb with a continuous nature. Moves start right off the deck with an awkward series to gain the base of a pod. Here the left lean and wide crack makes this perhaps the crux of the route. A rest can be eked after this in the flare at the base of the hand traverse. The traverse is an airy set of moves, without much help from the feet. From here deep hand jamming with an even more pronounced left lean finish the route.

Easy descent climber's right.


Full Standard Rack plus a #3.5 or a #4 Camalot.

Wild looking route from a far on a slightly overhanging wall. The route it self is probably one of the harder 5.11s in the park, I thought. Very strenuous and very sustained. Best to keep moving and not fiddle with gear. Apr 4, 2016
On Feb 8 of "86 Bob Yoho and I did a route on the left side of the Financial Wall where there is a thin face leading up to a hand crack. It was called "Taxed to the Limit" 5.12-

We also did "The Speculator" 5.11+ which is the obvious central crack leading up to the body slot.

And most difficult was "The Crash" which is the left leaning corner (just right of The Speculator") which leads to a finger crack.

At least that is what I have in my notes. Aug 24, 2016
