Description

Across the View has fun moves on tufa-like features.  Lichen is evidence of the lack of traffic, probably in large part due to what used to be an annoying approach pitch.

Scramble up to the alcove ledge by the easiest path, which should be no harder than 5.2 (or better yet, climb the new direct start).  An optional belay can be had at the alcove ledge-- useful if climbing both headwall routes. A steep section past the first bolt is much easier than it looks, because the huecos are huge. Above, bust left and go up a black streak through the overhanging crux using some tufa-like holds.

The 2-bolt anchor has has lowering biners on screwlinks but the bolts are very poorly placed in dishes and lowering on these biners will results in a lot of drag and rope twisting. Therefore, it's best to continue 5' farther up and right to the Presumed To Be Modern anchor on easy terrain.

A 60m rope will just barely reach from the ground to the anchor, and back to the ground, with rope stretch.

Location

Across the View is the left bolted line on Gallery Wall. It shares the start with Presumed..

Protection

10 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. This anchor has nothing to lower or rappel from, but if you bring an extra draw, you can clip it, and easily continue to the higher anchor for Presumed to be Modern.
