A single route with great views of the valley. The climbing is varied and challenging. The views are even better. A great afternoon approach and climb to enjoy views of the entire New Jack valley.

Getting There 

Same approach as the Deadbolt Wall. Once you are on the ridge,
continue left (south) around the spines that parallel the Deadbolt Wall.
Follow the small “plateau” that wraps the ridge-line. The Critic will be
on your right, facing east.
