BETA PHOTO: Headwall Crack Right (5.9 Trad/TR) Climb the crack...


The crack/corner to the right of No Exit. Gets steeper and wider at top but good holds can be found in the reaches of the crack.


This is the crack/corner to the right of the bolted face route, No Exit. Shown as route number 8 on the Overlook route topo photo.


Medium to large gear to bolted anchor. A #4 camalot is really nice for the top.

A fun route, but be careful of the loose pebbles at the top of the cliff. I sent a whole bunch down on my belayer while groping wildly for a topout jug (sorry, Dad!). I tried to clean some of them off the top as I walked out today, but I expect this work will be erased by the next rainstorm. It may be advisable to pre-hang your anchor slings before leading to avoid this unpleasantness altogether.

A #4 camalot is useful to protect the crux on this climb, though other gear can be found.
