DescriptionThis is a long, bolted route straight up the main face of the Ed and Terry Wall. The climbing is straightforward on positive edges with the occasional sidepull and a pinch here and there. There are a couple of small bulges with tiny edges for feet that might make you question just what you are doing up 300 feet above the valley floor attached to a tiny little thread. Right before the last bolt there is a tiny roof/bulge that is kinda fun.
The crux for me was when the edges got smaller and the feet went off camber for a move or two. The psychological crux was looking up to the next bolt each time and thinking, Ive gotta go that far on these little edges?
A 70 meter rope is recommended. After lowering our 70m rope had about 15 feet left including the tie-ins. You might be able to use a 60m rope if you belay from the next platform up and to the right (base of Main Crack) and rappel or lower to a narrow ledge about 10 feet up, then downclimb. If you use a 60m definitely knot the end or tie the belayer in.
