Although the FA was done on lead, this climb is almost always done on toprope. Start at the memorial plaque and then work left up the face, eventually finishing on the arete just right of Carey Corner. A superb line.

The plaque at the base of this route is a memorial to Jim Adair, who died in Yosemite. His father, Bob Adair, is a physics professor at Yale and is famous for a book on the physics of baseball. The Adairs have given generously to the RMF.


This climb is at the right end of the cliff - the Adair memorial marks the start.


If done on lead, bring your best style. Don't expect any fixed pro.
