The "classic" line on cracked wall. Just to the right of 60-seconds follow up the shield to the "bung-hole" mono and traverse onto the tiger stripes. Finish at either 60-seconds or Only Way anchors.


4 bolts and one #2 WC rock b/w the second and third bolts if you like

If you want to finish at the 60 Seconds anchor, bring a few larger pieces to 3.5" Jan 23, 2004

From the last bolt, there is actually some quite good 5.7ish climbing to the 60 Seconds anchor. If you don't want to climb Western Airlines, you can climb up the first half of 60 Seconds, then cut out right (you will be directly across from the last bolt on WA) and continue as above. Sep 17, 2005
Unless you're solid at the grade, bring a small nut to slot in a constriction after the second bolt. The "bung-hole" mono is a very insecure and strange hold. Sep 15, 2011
I disagree with Richard... if you use a nut it makes the awesome fingerlock less bomer and the move up to the next bolt is definately not 5.11... as long as your belayer is on top of things you shouldn't fall that far onto the second bolt (though i've never fallen on that move) Oct 31, 2011

It appears to be spider nesting season. There's a big f***ing spider living in the infamous mono. Probably the cliff should be closed for the remainder of the season, until the spiderlings fledge the nest. May 11, 2017
You can easily slot a small DMM offset nut into the bottom of the constriction 3-4 feet above the second bolt without blocking the finger lock. (Even if you did block it, this move is not the crux.) I took a pretty good whip on it too, so I can confirm that it holds and is also a good idea if you're not solid on this route. Aug 8, 2017
