Description

Start on the first half of "Wisdom." Climb until you get to the crystal that you use to toss out right to the flakes on "Wisdom." Look left and you will see a nice horizontal crack/seam. Crimp like mad as you traverse left into the middle of the project left of "Wisdom." Finish the middle and upper section of this project.

This is not as hard as the direct version, but it's still going to be a classic when it goes... and it won't be long!!!

Location

From the 1st parking lot take the Sisters trail until it meets up with the Ponderosa. Take a left (west) for about 50 yards and look up to your right and you will see this tall steep wall called the "Wisdom Wall" about 100 or so yards up hill. Once you have got it spotted just keep your eye on it as you continue to bush whack your way up to the steep tall madness of the "Wisdom Wall."

Protection

Many, many pads and at least two spotters!!! Big fall potential!!!

Hey Alex, I also updated your 1st ascent status on this line as well. Jul 30, 2012
Hey Alex, very nice work, man! And yes, I will change the route name to Death Wish! Great to see someone else pumped about this one! I fell of the top once and hit so hard I never tried it again, so truly nice work! Death Wish it is! Jul 30, 2012

If this has not been sent yet, I would like to give it the name "Death Wish" I just sent it today. As like Luke, I also went up to the boulder for a solo mission and it would have been a freaky!! fall blowing off that last move before the jug.
Video to come as well.

Almost got this freakin' thing today!!! Fell at the left hand move to the under-cling/gaston which is the last hard move before sticking your right into a nice jug system!!!!!!

I think I failed because of being crazy pumped and the fear of the fall, as I had no spotters.. at all. Nonetheless, I took the huge crater fall and hit my pads so hard that I was tossed back up into the air and then onto the ground next to my pads!!! It's the longest fall I have ever had bouldering and it was nuts!! Not going to try this one until I get a crew out to put this thing away. It's going to be classic, man!! Classic!! Jul 10, 2009
