Description [Suggest Change]

This is a two pitch face route on the left side of the Weeping Wall. Pitch 1 (5.6) up the center of a slab which rests against the wall. There is no protection on this pitch, but a series of pockets make it feel more secure than most friction pitches. Pitch 2 has a short crux section, which is well-protected.

Interesting position, but not a great route. The first pitch has an old rusty bolt about half way up, and there are a few options for gear. The second pitch route was non-distinct. There were numerous ways one could go. I think I found my way over to Continuation for the top out. Nothing really felt 5.9 for me, but I was likely off route due to following the path of least resistance. Pro was tricky at times. No gear bigger than 1" cam needed. Oct 18, 2015
For P2 I went right to a seam and then back left to the right facing flake. Some loose blocks up there. And I clipped a bolt near the finish that was probably on Continuation. There's two bolts right of the second pitch that don't seem to have a route associated with them. Feb 18, 2018
