Description

This "route" is more of a direct start to the routes in the "Above the Practice Wall Area" of Pitchoff. It starts in the same spot that Pete's Farewell does, but essentially goes left instead of right and ends up spitting you out right around the middle of the traverse line of the second pitch of every climb in this area. From there you can link it up to whatever your heart desires. In more detail, you start by scrambling on to the first big ledge in the first pitch of Pete's Farewell. From here, break left into a series of left rising, right facing corners. Work up to and overhang which you clear on the far left side. Find and climb up the gently left rising crack which eventually puts out on the traverse line.

Location

Start at the base of Pete's Farewell, and break left as soon as you can.

Protection

Most pieces will need to be extended on this climb since you are essentially taking two pitches and turning it into one that inevitably wanders a bit. Protection of all sizes can be found almost anywhere along the line.

This is actually pretty good climbing, and a nice alternative to the regular start to Pete's. You should be able to go from the ground to the top of P2 of Pete's easily (use long runners to reduce drag, as it will be a fairly long pitch). And I'm pretty sure (even considering the mental dimness of all the passing decades) that the full name that we used for this was "The Lonely 5.6" Jan 18, 2014
