Near the left edge of the south face of Short Wall there is a thin system of crack and seam. Climb this, staying in the obvious line. The climb is reasonably mellow and protected for most of it's length.

If one is solid at the grade, and gear placement, this is a good lead. I wouldn't recommend this for the run of the mill .10a leader.
