5.11 face climbing over some interesting features leads to a hollow flake (fragile rock!) below a small roof. Struggle through a difficult/awkward sequence to gain a decent rail and easier climbing to the anchors.
Rated 5.12c in the Williams guide, though a fair bit more difficult than the similarly graded Pettifogger.


The middle route on the White Wall, in between Dining at the Altar and Pettifogger. The start has a distinct crescent-shaped rail leading to the high first bolt.
Scramble up to the ledge and traverse left from the start of Pettifogger or climb direct up the seam and dirty face.


6 bolts and bolted anchor. Stick clip for the first bolt.

I personally thought this route was easier than the other two on the wall. Easy 5.11 climbing to a short crux pulling over the roof. May 5, 2016
To each their own! I have notoriously poor open hand strength, so the crux felt much harder to me. I've heard of people calling this a 12b even. Regardless, it's probably the lesser of the three routes on this wall in terms of quality. May 5, 2016

As I have notoriously weak closed hand strength...how does that even work? lol May 6, 2016
