Mike Veasey on Suicide Wall.

Description 

This route starts in the vicinity of Midnight Special. P1: Climb up under the overlap and traverse right into a small right facing corner. Continue up changing corners to a blank slab. Move a bit left to a hidden flake and continue up and right to a bolt anchor. 100’ 5.8 PG-13
P2: Climb up the final headwall placing gear along the way to the top of the cliff. Climbing the face direct off the anchor is harder. Use a tree for an anchor. 50’ 5.8

Thats awsome that Loran can come back after 33 years and lead this again great job!

A hand-fist sized piece works good above the first pitch anchor to pull the roof directly around 5.10. Alternatively, skirting under the left side of the roof, moving up and steping out right on the face to regain the direct route feels super exposed and keeps the grade around 5.8. Another great route to do in a long pitch!
