Description 

Are you the fifth wheel? The odd person out on a trip up to Panic Town? A boulderer who thinks trad is dumb? This will keep you busy while the geeks sort their gear and talk about how much a single lobe of a Totem Cam will "actually" hold if you fell on it, blah, blah, blah.

At the far right of Wall 1, start on the obvious 20' overhanging boulder behind the dead trunk. Pimp your way up to the big rail for your left hand, then foot. Mince your way up the slab with the wiggly seam and over the oak branch. Now you're on the arete of the wall. Take it to the top. Wave to brainiacs who are still sorting gear. Downclimb the route or scramble down the right side or left side of the wall. Rinse, repeat, go for a swim.
