Right of the route B-1 is this shallow crack that jogs right about halfway up before finishing up.

Discovered an interesting variation to Walkway (west face of Trashcan rock) last week. Instead of the standard start, use the slanting crack at the beginning of Baby-Point-Five and face holds to its left to gain enough height to latch the finger hole below the vertical crack of Walkway. At the top of the vertical crack, finish straight up the face instead of following the ramp to the right. Ironically, although this variation raises the technical difficulty of the route, it might actually be easier for short climbers than the regular route.

Chrys' variation is the only way I've ever known to do this climb. Maybe 5.6 but it's right off the ground. The last vertical crack is more fun and exposed than the standard finish.

Finish on the vert crack that appears about 2/3 out the ramp, much better quality and more "climbing" instead of walking.

solid this in vans slip on shoes. It's an easy climb with solid hands and feet. Both variations are fun and worth it if you're looking for some easy warm ups

Fun solo in approch shoes or flip flops, not worth placing on.

The start might be a little dicey in flip flops.

Agree that the start is more like 5.6.

Start is a little tricky, maybe 5.5-5.6 if you start on the left and then step right to get established in the crack. Not PG-13 because you can reach over and place a good #.75 in the crack before you commit to the move.
