  • Description 

    This is a one pitch route on the right side of the Great Big Wall. It is mostly a slab climb over a few bulges in the rock with intermittent cracks. Three bolts protect the bottom half of the climb. Above that, the climbing is easier but runout to the anchor which is shared with Hanging Judge to the left. To protect the runout, I slung a horn and placed a small cam (0.5) in a crack.

    Location 

    This is on the right side of the Great Big Wall, just to the right of Hanging Judge and about 15 feet left of a large, left-facing dihedral.

    Protection 

    Only about 4 bolts to a two-bolt anchor, but can take a couple of small cams to place in intermittent cracks to protect runouts.
