This is the leftmost of the four bolted routes. Above bolt three is a short, left-facing dihedral. Bolts four and five lie above a ledge, to the left of the dihedral. Bolt five lies just above a twelve-inch overhang. The climbing is vertical and very reachy through the crux, which is below the ledge. If Clear Cut is 10b, the Original Route is 10d, or harder, unless you are tall.


It is the leftmost of the four parallel bolted routes on the Vertical Wall.


Five bolts. A #0.3 C4, or equivalent, can be placed in a horizontal, to tame the run-out between bolts three and four. The anchor bolts, which have no chains or rings for lowering or rappelling, lie on a ledge above the finishing ledge, and are hard to see. A toprope could be set up without being on the brink of the sheer wall.
