LRC-style plate pulling, albeit short..if you can stomach the looseness. Monkey hang your way up the start, then drop knee your way out loose plates to the vertical, facey top out.


Up and behind the Revelation Wall.


Not much gear until the first bolt unless you want to tote a #5+ size cam for the first big horizontal rail. Ride this to climber's right, clip bolt, gain horn, slap in a 0.5 Camalot, then pull through to the vertical face climbing to the anchors. Dual hangers with leaver biners for now. To sew up, take a 34 Camalot, a a short quickdraw, 0.5 Camalot, then two or three cams from 1" to 2" for the two draws.

Pin pulled and replaced with a bolt just before the roof. Deletes PG13 rating.... *** short route.

Rope is attached to anchors, bolt is below the lip of the roof. Ge ta 0.5 once established on the horn, then pull into the top looking for small gear.
