Comments: The crux has baffled me for years. I first led this in around 1981 and always break on through but still have no idea how I made it! Followed it a few days ago and the same. This crux feels harder to me than numerous 5.11a cruxes in Eldo.... Whatever, I just don't get this being 5.10.

Comments: Followed this today, and we TR'ed P1 of Sidewall, great combo, excellent and varied: led P1 Practice Climb 101, traversed to the Sidewall P1 anchor, lowered/rapped off. TR Sidewall P1, segue into leading P2 in one go. 70m rope rappel back to the ground. Agree with Tony, I am 5' 10", and the hardest aspect of all this was the crux on P1 Practice Climb.

Comments: Obscure variation:

After pitch 3 eases, instead of going for Rebuffat's Arete, run up and belay at the first BIG tree smack dab in the middle of the gully. Traverse from the tree directly left onto the left wall of the gully, and follow a crack system upward, navigating past a bush in the crack then over a ledge or two and some blocky terrain on up over the top. Maybe 5.9.

Not as classic as the arete but worthwhile to me.

Comments: Nice change of pace for the grade at Potrero, juggy steep crux unlike most of the less than vertical balancy face climbing most of the 5.10a's offer.
