Description

The easiest route up the Main Wall - it protects very well and the climbing is not difficult. As with most Main Wall routes, the first pitch is stellar, including the aid tension move, and the rest are forgettable. Find a guidebook for a proper description of the pitches.

Location

Hard to describe, see photo.

Protection

Best pro you'll encounter on the Main Wall, with no fixed gear except the aid peg. Take a single rack, nothing bigger than a BD #3.

I completely disagree that the pitches of The Amazing Journey are "forgettable" after the "stellar" first pitch. This route weaves it's way through some fabulous rock architecture, taking a relatively straightforward way up a dramatic section of cliff. This is why I called it The Amazing Journey in 1974 when I put the route up.
