On the south end of Lower Decadent - Asian Wall, one will see a face between 2 distinct chimneys/squeeze chimneys. This face will be split every 15 feet or so by a pair of twin horizontal cracks (ie. face for 15 feet 2 horizontal cracks, 15 more feet of face, 2 more horizontal cracks). Climb this face utilizing the cracks for protection, at the 3rd set cross right into the chimney/crack system. Continue to the top. Beware of gritty rock down low.


Medium to large gear is useful with runners.

Hi Nathan, I'd like include this route in the new guide, but can't decipher it's location from the description...
