P1 (5.4 R) - Climb the shallow right-facing corner system, then more or less straight up to a tree at the GT ledge. To climb the next pitch, relocate the belay 40ft left, at the top of Wasp.

P2 (5.5) - Diagonal and traverse to the far left end of the overhang, exit the overhang, then zig right toward an open book.


From the Wasp access trail, scramble up the right side of the large boulder pile, then left to the top of the pillar.

Descend via two raps on a 60m from the GT ledge, or a 70m from the Wasp tree, or cruise down Roger's Escape Hatch.


Don't let the 5.4 R grade in Williams scare you.



I remember some seriously loose rock on this -- would not put an inexperienced party on it. Dec 12, 2015

Great roof and traverse action on pitch 2. Otherwise, lots of lichen and loose vegetation all over the route. I would not repeat it, but the roof is nice and fun. Apr 17, 2017
