P1: 5.9+ Go up the protectable crack (difficult moves near the ground) and continue up the crack to a nice ledge in the middle of the west fact to the right of a tree.

P2: 5.8 This is the second pitch of the Bastard route. There may be a fixed pin on the face a bit up from the belay. Trend left after about 50 feet to the base of the Oven.

P3: 5.10a This crux pitch goes out the crack in the back of the oven with good pro. Continue up and join the belay for the last pitch of the West Face route.

P4: 5.7 Finish the climb on the last pitch of the West Face route.


The route starts left of the Wizard and right of a tree in a crack next to some triangular rock. Finish the climb and continue to the usual raps. The idea of the climb was to combine some of the better pitches on the south and west faces of Lambda Wall. I did the FA on the harder pitches (one and three), on different days, but never combined the four noted in the description. I do want the climb to be done by others.


Standard Organ trad rack.
