This unusual route has the distinction of being the longest route (190') at the Short Wall, as it traverses the wall in it's entirety. Probably not the best climb for those crowded weekends, but midweek should work.

Starting at the far left side of the wall, left of Step 'n Out, traverse right following an obvious horizontal break that ends at the far right side near Donna T's Route (finish up that route).

A fun climb that is a lot easier than it looks, with good gear and varied climbing. Two stars out of five.


Gear to 3 inches and some slings

This isn't named after the song Lateralus by TOOL is it?
