Mike Kurilich on Whipper Snapper
All of the climbs here are 5.fun as my buddy Mike Kurilich likes to say. Most new leaders seem to like Sweet Louise and Lower Dentures. Lifeline gives some opportunity for a little chockcraft on a longer climb. Crossing Over takes an exposed alpine-like romp that is longer than you expect maybe destined for classic status.
This is large lower angle slab first seen when you hit the lower talus field of Geezer Wall. Just left of Aiguille du Tree.

There are so many bolts on this wall it is difficult to tell which route goes where from below. Bringing up the photos on my phone did little to help, maybe print something out to reference at the crag. some routes are only partly bolted and not having my trad rack, it was difficult to tell which bolt lines would go all the way up and which wouldn't. Except for Crossing Over - That route is easy to reference and a ton of fun!
