BETA PHOTO: I think this is Cheap Day Return


Actually quite a good route. A little different as it yields challenging face climbing (11b) that ends up being a bit on the runout side due to the difficulty of placing small gear (RP's, etc...) in the very, very thin crack. It may follow a thin crack but it's really face climbing for all intents and purposes. And of course, once again, it's on disconcertingly slick rock.

At the end of the hairline crack one is naturally taken onto the top section of Question of Balance. Finish on the runout top section of that route.


Starts in the center of the wall at the obvious hairline crack just left of Burning Down the House.


Very small gear up to about 1.5".
