Around the outside edge of the Main Face's gigantic corner, the Slanting Cracks Wall diminishes in height, tapering down to nothing in a few hundred yards. However, there's plenty of rock to be had before it ends. Most of the routes in this area are single pitch, but some of those pitches are extremely long (170'), requiring a lot of rack and persistence. Routes such as Variety Crack also take a big swathe of your (& friends') gear supply, swallowing everything from 000 C3s to #5 C4s.
Expect the full run from relatively civilized (aka "clean") lines to vertical weed-whacking where a wire brush is your most vital pro.

Getting There 

Walk around the gigantic corner to the right.
