Much like the cracks, this one's all over the place. Climb the crack(s) to a ledge with anchors.


On the face that is the right side of the Jaywalker corner, there are several crack systems. The left-most crack system is Restless Pedestrian. The crack just to the right of this, that splits into two cracks further up, is Exposed Aggregate.


standard rack, bolts and rings on the ledge

Maybe because it was my first lead of the day, but this seemed pretty stiff for 5.7. I did a lot of probing and downclimbing before I could commit to the thin upper section.

It's a little steep, but aside from one or two flarey jams, it's super positive.

I lead this yesterday and near the top there is a very obvious "new" looking section of rock where it looks like a flake broke off. It is just to the right of the cracks you climb and maybe 5-10 feet from the top. After attempting to finish the route 3 times the way the guide book shows it, I ended up having to go slightly to the left to finish it.

Great little climb, but bring some runners to reduce rope drag. I got a little confused at the top; I tried going up the right crack at the top which felt pretty sketchy. I ended up using a small sidepull crimp between the cracks on the face to get to the slopers at the top.

Didn't use anything larger than a BD#2. Tricams or stoppers work well on this route also.

Normally I'd call this a 5.7 but T-wall grades are sandbagged. One will find this climb easier than other 5.7s at T-wall so I'd call it a 5.6. It has bomber hand jams for 90% of the climb and face jugs for the other 10%.
