Yet another quality Troll Wall moderate crack! This route starts in an obvious left-facing corner that gets bigger as it goes higher, eventually turning into a right slanting crack/shallow corner. The Tao of Choy parallels this crack just eight feet left, and both cracks form an alcove under a roof approximately 35 feet up (although neither route ascends the final, dirty 12 feet up into the alcove). Above the right slanting crack, step left on a small ledge to a clean thin crack (identified by a piton approximately 10 feet up. The main crack becomes very dirty from this point on). Continue up this for 15 feet, and then step left to a small stance at the anchors. (Squeezing the Lemmon quality scale: 2 out of 3 stars.)


3 pitons, pro to 3", anchors.


The third crack system downhill and right of Gully, and the next independant crack system left of Furchissakes (see Squeezing the Lemmon.)

I think I did this? I had meant to do Run Like Hell, but I guess I just wasn't paying attention and ended up climbing something to it's left (anxious to climb/get out of the sun, I suppose). At a certain point I stepped right into a small corner with two pitons, which led to a right-leaning flake/crack and eventually the anchors of Run Like Hell on my right. The description here indicates moving left each time that I moved right, hmm. Whatever I did, though, was pretty fun and a good warm up. Felt like .10a.
