This short route goes directly up the flake structure above the Walt's Wall bolted belay stance, initially angling slightly right until the left-arching crack is reached. The protection is somewhat problematic due to the shallow nature of the crack in places. This is fun for the confident and capable leader but not a beginner lead. End on the diagonal ramp of Walt's Wall, pitch 2.
Start at the first belay at the end of traditional first pitch of Walt's Wall.
Small wire stoppers, RPs, and a few hand size to 3" Camalots.

BITD before wired stoppers, Camalots, and sticky rubber soles, this climb had quite a reputation for being pretty scary. I tried it once in old RR Blue Boots and with a few pitons along. Sadly failed but led it easily a number of years later in Sportivas with a light rack with small wires and a couple cams.
