Falled on Account of Strain is a great climb that culminates in a huge roof finish. This is one of the easiest lines up the Slime Wall, but it's no gimmie.

Start about 100' right of Simple Suff and 20' left of April Showers, at a thin crack/seam.

P1 (5.9+, 80'): Head up a nice but runout face left of the seam/crack to a bolted anchor.

P2 (5.10b, 80'): Belay, or continue up and right to the massive roof. It's difficult to discern exactly where to pull this roof, but you basically have to do a very big move off a small undercling to reach up over the roof. Once you do this crux move, you'll see some fixed pins that reassure you that you're going the right way. Continue to the bolted belay/rap anchor.


Standard Rack. #3 Camalot useful for a wide horizontal crack on the first pitch.
