BETA PHOTO: The Thin Wall
This route is shown clearly in the attached Photo. To reach it, approach the Thin Wall's East Side and orient according to the photo. This would best be described as the right-most route of the left half of the wall, just left of the large right-facing corner at the 1/2 way point. The route is traditionally rated (Vogel guide) as 5.9, but it seems that everything at Thin Wall is over-graded and this felt fairer at 5.8.
A standard light rack- nuts and cams.

"Count on your fingers" (rated 5.9 I think). Fun, easy, bolted up top so easy to top rope. Good climb to teach on in the summer months as it is in the shade from 3-4pm on. Easy walk up from left side if facing the wall from the east. Positive foot and handholds.

Back to back 5.8/9 moves to finish the slight bulge at the top. Probably not quite 5.9. Nice route, plenty of pro opportunities if you want to sew it up. Rap anchors directly up top.

Bring your stoppers. Fun route with a crux towards the top.

Excellent Climb! Probably won't reach classic status, but a hidden gem IMHO. Good gear and climbing, and a provoking crux bulge at the end. Gear was excellent, with many excellent nuts. Get this one wired and then do No Calculators.

Upper crux takes a nice 1.5" cam. Nice route and worth doing.

You can also climb a 5.8+ version of this route starting from the right of the arete and slowly making your way back to the main route for top rope.
There are 2 bolts on the top-out, which also allows quick setup for top rope.

I thought the protection was far more challenging than the moves. And the hordes of top-ropers and their screaming kids while leading this....

The fact that the Thin Wall was (and always is) mobbed with people really detracts from what is otherwise a good climb. Steep, with a definite crux up high.
