Description 

This is a two pitch face route on the left side of the Weeping Wall. Pitch 1 (5.6) up the center of a slab which rests against the wall. There is no protection on this pitch, but a series of pockets make it feel more secure than most friction pitches. Pitch 2 has a short crux section, which is well-protected.


Protection 

standard rack
