DescriptionCleaned up, this might be a worthwhile run. In its present state, not so much.
Climb up the slab, avoiding any/all unstable blocks perched every-so precariously, to the lowest point of the headwall, where it becomes a broken set of steps at the base of a right-rising ramp. Ascend the ramp as it steepens to become a left-facing corner behind an oak tree. Climb the corner (smaller cracks on the right face provide "normal" gear; the wide crack would take #6 Camalots - or bigger) to its end, and scramble up a set of steps to a pine tree.
The initial slab is sprinkled with loose boulders and blocks lying at an unnerving angle. Don't touch them. The slab is also quite dirty, though it is also easy.
LocationThis route begins near the high point of the base around the buttress and about 50' left of the signature narrow A-frame notch of the Laboratory Wall.
