Take the newly excavated finger crack to a small ledge with a tree. Step left following the face with gear in horizontals to another dirty crack. Use the crack for gear, step left and continue on the edge filled face.
Optional finish 1: finish on Excavation Crack
Optional finish 2 (recommended) trend up and left about 20 feet (easy) to a double bolt belay


Far Right end of the Hanging Chain Wall, past the routes in the Selected Climbs book. You will come to a large arete just past a gully. The arete has a route with 3 bolts and bolted anchors on it. You will then pass another unknown route with a low bolt. Weed-wack Crack is 10 feet right of that route. The gully to the right of this climb leads to the Wall of Solitude.


Up to 2.5". Either rap from the tree above Excavation Crack or rap from left anchors

If anyone climbs this, let me know if it has cleaned up at the bottom and top cracks, it will be a nice climb if it does.
