Climb the thin face bewteen Route 2 and Neanderthal to a small overhang. Clear this overhang at 2 loose flakes (5.9), then continue up the short face to the larger ceiling. Work out the lip of the ceiling, hand traverse slightly right, then pull over the ceiling to the large ledge (Neolithihc Ledge).

Originally done as an aid climb (A3) in the early 1970s. FFA unknown.

Build an anchor at the back of the ledge. You will need gear and long slings to set up a TR from here.


In the center of the Neolithic Wall near the left edge and a few feet right of the Route 2 ceiling notch in the obvious ceiling 35 feet up.

FFA Bud (The Budman) Arbelo and Paula Malone, Mid 90"s. Bolt at roof old 1/4" aid bolt with funky hanger (gotta love it). Lowe Ball useful if not absolutely necessary.

Two large flakes under the first overhang, marked with Xs, are loose. Watch out!
