Description

There are a few ways to start the climb, all which have their challenges. The direct way is straight up a funky crack, puling over a slight bulge onto a ramp. The ramp ends at the left side of a roof. I found the crux to be the traverse under the roof to it's right side, where you gain some sweet flakes up a left leaning thin ramp to a two bolt anchor. The climb is steeper than it looks! Expect a good pump if you don't use the rests.

Location

Just right of A Minor, before the leaning flake.

Protection

Though it can be climbed on gear, most will top rope the route as placements look scant.

Does the fact that this route is most often climbed on TR mean that there is a walk off/ top of cliff access? Sep 19, 2018

I can't think of one climb at Lower West that you cannot walk off from. Sep 19, 2018
