Description

The five meter crack on the northeast-facing wall of Music Hall reveals the start of Wedding Route. Getting off the ground and into where it becomes a shallow right-facing dihedral is the crux. Follow the crack, with intermittent horizontal cracks, until it disappears, then continue up through blocky bands and beautiful quartz patches towards the large, obvious ledge. This route will have endless traffic on any kind of decent weekend, so either get here early or prepare to stand in line.

This route has been bolted and rebolted previously, but both generations of bolts have been removed, and the route is now regarded as a trad climb.

From the anchors at the big ledge, you can continue to the top via a 5.4 ramp (I call it The Honeymoon Extension) or up the juggy overhanging face via Small Triangle more aptly translated as "The Mistress".

Location

Approach as for Music Hall. After you dip down towards the sea, passing under the Whale's Head, and rise back up, you will see the large alcove of Recital Hall about seven meters above the large platform. Wedding Route starts just to the left of this. Or, the route farthest to the right on Music Hall wall. Faces northeast.
