A few yards right of the other routes here, there is a crack system. The larger crack on the left is, I would say, Class 4 and makes an easy way to get to the top and set topropes for the other routes. The thinner crack on the right is Pointless Wonder.

Going to the effort to set up a TR for Pointless Wonder probably is pointless; it feels much easier than many other 5.4 routes I have climbed.

However, it is a rare Greenbelt route that will take trad gear. Stoppers work pretty well on this one, and thus it is decent for learning to place stoppers while having very little chance of falling.


Stoppers or toprope.
