Description

P1: Climb up the short wall to a small ledge beneath the large corner/flake. Climb the corner/flake to a good ledge. You can move up and a bit right to the wall and build a gear belay or move further right to a belay at bolts. If you use the bolts, beware of rope drag.

To finish, continue up the large right facing corner above, which is P2 of Old Ladies Excitement.  This was previously and erroneously called DOM's 2nd pitch.

Location

Left side of Upper Broadway Ledge about 40 feet right of the Upper Broadway Chimney. Look for an obvious left-facing corner/flake that lies about 10 feet off the ground. The right side of this flake forms Frosted Flake.

Protection

Standard trad rack. Larger hexes and medium cams (#2/3/4) helpful.

Bolts at the end if you move about 20 ft right or build a gear anchor.  If you finish up Old Ladies Excitement to the top, there are bolted rap rings at the short wall behind the pine tree.
