DescriptionThis route--more of a variation--may be done either of two ways: (1) begin at the Edward's Crack start, and after the initial difficulties, step right into a trough leading to a gear belay for the second pitch of Walt's Wall, or (2) climb the first pitch of Walt's Wall to the base of the ramp constitution the second pitch of the route.
From there, make an ascending traverse left across an unprotected face, aiming for the "usual" first belay of Edward's Crack. The route normally takes the Right Exit to Edward's Crack.
This is infrequently climbed these days, but it provides an easier access to the more enjoyable pitch(es) of Edward's Crack by any of the exits.
It is not quite a "bomb," but it is close.
