Wiessner's routes are an amazing thing to climb some 80 years later...Up and Left of Hesitation to the first big corner.
On the left wall look up and see a chimney to a block roof sticking out of the Rock.
Pitch One: Climb the chimney to the block roof, climb the block to the left side and jam past this 5.6 crack to easier climbing. Belay is optional on ledge after small roof. Continue up the path of least resistance to the giant 3rd class ledge.
Move the belay to the far back of the ledge where there are three options for the last pitch.
Pitch Two: Follow the R. most crack/dihedral 30' to the top.
V1 Follow the middle (5.8) finger crack to the top. Nice couple of moves!
V2 Follow the Left Crack/Corner to the top (5.6)
