This climb was originally graded 5.10-. However, pretty much all of the best holds have since broken off. So the grade may be harder now.


Located on the front of the second jumble of boulders that you will pass on your way up the Lost Wall/Center Wall trail. The route is on the front of one of the boulders that forms the cave which houses the climb "What, A Harmonica Convention."


3 bolts to a double bolted top anchor.

Very small holds on this thing now. Tried it at least 6 times from the ground - furthest I got was feet at bolt 1, not quite able to reach bolt 2. Definitely worth trying as the sequence to there was pretty fun
