Description Suggest change

Prednisone climbs the very overhanging groove in the center of the steep alcove on the lower end of Summer Wall. Start with a dirty slab, past 3 bolts, until you get to a steep mini-wall. Surmount this wall (5.10+) and gain a stance on a sloping ledge before the upper corner.

From here, climb up and right into the very steep corner, using progressively worse holds, and passing a hard clip. Big heroic moves lead to a topout on the slab beyond the chains. 

One note: The upper corner requires a diligent belay because there's a lot of rope out, and it's some pretty hard climbing above that midway ledge. Too much slack in the system could result in hitting the ledge.

8 bolts to LO chains
