DescriptionThis is a fun slab and lieback climb to warm up on. The rock quality also seems to be a bit better than most of the routes on Mountain Light Wall which is a good thing because the crux is pure friction climbing.
Start on a crack system that leads to a small ledge 50 feet up. If there is a snowcone at the base you can traverse in from the left on 5.6 slab. From the ledge take the flake up and left until it ends. Slab climb past two bolts to reach another flake which arches back right to a 2 bolt rap anchor.
Rappel to the ground with 2 ropes. With one 70m rope you can rappel to some ledges and gully off right, but going this way can be difficult if there is snow at the base.
