This is the finger crack and face to the left of Chemical Wire.

1st pitch (11-) 100 ft
Start down in the schist and climb the finger crack up until the bulge. Ease out onto the face and clip a couple bolts to get up to the crux under the small roof. (a pink tricam fits nicely as the crux piece). Pull the roof and continue up the finger crack above. Head left and up on bolts through a series of bulges to the bolted anchor.

2nd pitch (12-) 50 ft
Crank on small crystals and long pulls between good holds for a few bolts to get you onto the slab and easier climbing above. You can build an anchor at the top of the pitch at a huge flake feature that is right around the corner from the start of the the 3rd pitch of Political Prowness.
You can venture to the top of the wall via the last two pitches of Political Prowness from here. It is also possible to head up and right before the flake to reach the anchors on Political Affair if you just want to do the first two pitches. This finish might be better with another bolt or two...probably should have thought of that.


White House Wall left of Chemical Wire.


Single rack up to a BD #2. Extra finger size and smaller cams useful. Stoppers and Brass.
