|Ground Up Wall
Diverse climbing on great rock. Start in a thin seem layback this past a lone bolt to a ledge then up a steep finger crack to another sloping ledge.Step left and follow steep pockets to gain a large right facing corner when it ends do an airy traverse out right on a short horizontal hand crack then up to a ledge and rap anchor. Two ropes or A single 70 meter rope will just barely get you down (stay right at end of rap). Stiff for the grade!
On the left end of the middle section of cliff just before it steepens and faces slightly South.
Final move to anchor at 32 m. Jay Foley on sight ...

One of the best ground up FAs I have ever witnessed. Proud lead, I was lucky to get to hold the rope that afternoon. I'd say 11a because the first moves off the ground are hard and then it gets difficult. If rapping on 70m, knot the ends and rap to climber's right (upstream).
