BETA PHOTO: The Wiessner Corner

Description 

Cruise up the classic 5.7 layback corner. At the top move left under a roof to a flaired finger crack (crux). A couple moves get you to a wonderful side pull flake where you can compose yourself and check your gear. Move up so your feet are about even with the pine on your left, place a small cam above you and extend it with a sling. Reach out right to gain a good hand crack, which takes you up to a bolted anchor. The hand crack is flared up higher, but there are great spots for off-set nuts in the back

Location 

Near the left side of the Beanstalk Wall. Look for a left facing corner with a classic layback crack with a small roof above.

Protection 

Cams to #3, nuts (larger off-sets or tricams)

got me. Forgot the other 'S'. There has got to be a Wiessner route at every crag.

Not the best route here but worth doing if you're in the area. Tricky sequence to get past the flared finger crack
