Top rope ban in effect; DO NOT SLING THE CEDARS.

Description 

Descend Alfred Gully. as you come to the gully's opening at the base of the cliff, but before you down climb the little boulder section, look to your right. You will see a bolted route. This is Wide Load. To the right of Wide Load is a crack and continuing line of weakness. This is Vanna. Ascend the route. Just short of the cliff top, you can safely traverse left to the anchor station atop Wide load and rappel from there. This is a very easy 5.7 with only one 5.7 move.

Protection 

Trad. If traversing to the Wide Load anchor, be sure to use a long sling as a directional.

If your lust for choss compels you to top this thing out instead of traversing to the Wide Load anchors, there are some good features to sling as an anchor at the top. Not much in the way of cam or nut placements for the anchor.
