From the top of E.O. Lieback, make a somewhat tricky 5.8 move left over the hump (crux)to the face and continue traversing the parallel cracks past 5.11 Crack and some bulges which have some old but very usable pitons. Except for the 5.8 move, the climb is 5.6. It is fun, though.


Start at the top of E.O. Lieback on the Fall Wall area. Finish at the bottom of Upper Fall Wall Route. Climb Upper Fall Wall Route, it's a good finish or rap from chains at the top of the Fall Wall route.


Stoppers and small caming devices are sufficient as well as a couple draws for the pitons.
