Description

This route lies on the wall just right of Wiessner Slab. Start at a bolt about 10 feet up. After clipping, move up and right to a small ledge and the back left and up to a ledge a mid height. A small, slanting ledge leads to bigger holds above. The awkward mantle onto the small ledge is protected by a bolt. Continue up thin, discontinuous cracks to the top.

Protection

Some small cams are required just after the first bolt.

Do NOT assume the bolts will be in the route! This area is frequently vandalized and the bolts are often missing. The first bolt is easily seen from the ground. The second can't be seen without climbing the lower part of the route - it's gone you can step left to the top of Wiessner Slab.

When I was first on it (1975) there were no bolts (LOL). Aug 22, 2013
The bottom section can be reasonably protected without the bolt by stemming across to the side of the Weissner Slab and inserting a #1 or #2 camalot. The move above where the second bolt used to be is still pretty spicy, on account of the ledge below you. Very balancey move with rock right in your face. Jun 29, 2017
