Not a favorite of mine but it would make a good early lead for a newbie to the trad scene or a top rope for a new climber...

Climb the system of broken cracks past a small tree move slightly left and up to a large tree on the ledge... There are no slings here but i think this tree is the top... You can continue on harder somewhat sparsely protected rock to the ledge above where there is a tree with slings...


The obvious somewhat dirty looking weakness in the lower wonderwall... Just right of Arnos Corner...


Normal rack... to the tree...

I thought that this was just the typical start to the eliminate/london calling? Oh well, it is the best way to access any of the routes on the lower wonder wall and avoid the slime gully or at least the first half of it.

I believe this route is Beginner's Blessing which continues up to the large traverse/access ledge 80'.
