First moves up a slab (1st crux), with good holds on the wall to the left. Easier climbing leads to roof, with a nice lieback crack moving left (2nd crux). Roof protects well with .5 and sling. Make final hard moves up crack with prominent ledge on wall right of crack (3rd crux). Nice constricting jam at the top of thin crack helps get you to easier climbing for last 20ft.


Far right side of Davidson's Wall, shared start with Girl's Route.


.3"-2" singles. Double .5s can make moving through roof feel more safe.
