Climb easy terrain to a solitary bolt about 20 feet up then continue up a low-angled slab past a grapefruit-sized knob at the base of a vertical headwall with a featured crack. Intriguing moves, as well as textbook stopper slots, will be found throughout this section; higher the route follows a crack in a left-facing corner which affords some nice stemmming and thin jamming.
The crack ends about 20 feet below the anchors, and while possible to climb directly, an easier (and safer) alternative is to cut right about 8 feet to reach another crack system leading to the anchor. Bolted anchor/rap.
This is an enjoyable route reminiscent of the featured cracks of the upper Dairy Queen Wall, as well as the Shorter Wall in Rock Garden Valley. Three stars out of five.
