Can be done in one pitch (barely) with a 70 meter rope. Otherwise sparse areas for belay station, but possibly could be done in two pitches. This is a great single pitch route for the sheer length of it...easy climbing. Tree on top for the belay. It will take every inch of your rope to get there.


Climb the long crack 20 feet right of the left hand edge of the Sea of Glass Wall. This is the shorter wall that looks very smooth, south of the main Mule Hollow Wall.Walk off to the North. Some scrambling and steep scree field, but not horrible.


Excellent protection on the first half, second half is widely spaced protection...but good holds.

This is a spooky free solo as the rock quality was suspect here and there. Quite the sigh of relief when I topped out.
