This possible two-pitch route is on the right side of the Speedway, just left of a massive mossy fault. Begin at a two-bolt station on the approach ledge and climb a 25m, right-diagonaling finger and hand crack (trad pro) to a small platform ledge and bolt belay next to the mossy fault. Step right from the bolt belay onto the open face and climb past 7? bolts to the top. Can be done as two 25 pitches or linked up into one long 50m pitch.


Right side of Speedway wall. Bolt stations but no chains; rap Beefwhale or walk off down the This is Your Brain approach trail.


Finger-hand size nuts and cams (up to #2 Camalot)and quickdraws.
