DescriptionBeginning at the chain anchor on the first Walt's Wall belay ledge, traverse right and then diagonally upward to the nearest line of 3 widely spaced bolts. The bolt line is followed over very slick and water polished rock, very conservatively rated at "5.9+," but is realistically more like 5.10a/b. The short route may be extended a few more feet by veering slightly right to a fourth bolt (Kopischka finish) and reaching the belay ledge. The Kopischka finish is probably 5.10b, although Layne rated it as 5.10a immediately after the first ascent of the variation. Rappel from the bolt anchor, or continue to the top of Walt's Wall and use the walk-off.
LocationThe route begins at the chain anchor atop the first pitch of the standard Walt's Wall route.
Descend from ledge on which the route terminates by rappel using the Walt's Wall rappel route.
