Description Suggest change

The route for which the wall was named and for good reason. Named (i'm guessing) for beautiful streaking on the wall to the right. Because of its location it is often (always?) sandy and this makes your life harder. Great shade climb but not much else nearby. Steep !!

Begin on typical broken, ledgy terrain and then launch into a great hands corner through a roof. Above the roof the crack thins from 2.5 friends down to green camalots. Milk a rest in a pod with hands before the thin, hard ending (yellow-blue metolius).

Shade Beta: If you do this climb first (and are slow and lazy about it) the area facing the road where most of the climbs are will begin to get shade.

Location Suggest change

Way out right, just when you think you have been sent out to hunt snipe.

Protection Suggest change

6#2, 2-3 each #.3 - #1. Optional #3 can be nice for small hands near the top.
