Description

This is the second line on the roof section of the Wall of Justice, following a layback seam just left of Officer Friendly. Actually, it joins that route at the lip jug and pulls its technical crux. It is powerful, short and fun. My fingers still bear the mark of fingerlocks, but when climbing it I was as happy as a clam to have them.

Protection

5 clips to the 2 bolt anchor.

[Hide Comment] Pumpy. There could be a sweet dyno at the lip to a slopy crimpy edge. Didn't get it though. Oct 14, 2005

[Hide Comment] A really enjoyable climb. I also tried the big move out left from the lip, it's really cool and totally makes the route harder. Sep 14, 2006
