Access Issue: Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details

Description

From the stance described in "Location," traverse left on friction to a stepover onto the upper slab. There is bolt protection for the final, short runout to the top of the formation.

Location

The route or variation begins at an obvious belay stance 20 feet below the overhang. The same stance as for the Right Friction Finish.

Either walk off the back or rappel.

The Walt's Wall anchors are easily accesible.

Protection

Only a single bolt protects this lead.

This is a pretty unprotected, albeit easy, alternative to the direct exit on Edward's Crack. I have always thought this to be a "spicy" variation, and it is "old school" 5.4. Most visitors think that is a "sandbag." Apr 17, 2011
That's funny, because I always felt it way, WAY over rated at 5.4.

I've taken at least a dozen people, who's only previous climbing experience was one or days at an indoor gym, up Ed's using the Left Exit.

I much prefer that, to Walt's for a "first timer's climb". Apr 21, 2011
BITD, we used to think this was a 5.3, but the Kelman guidebook rates it as "5.4." The sparse protection and nice exposure can make an impression on beginning climbers.... May 29, 2011
