BETA PHOTO: Dead Battery is the left line. Looper is the righ...
A really nice line up a good piece of stone. OK a spot of crumbly rock and lichen up high, but the hard work is done at that point. The overhang at the bottom allows for some harder starts: jump to the first horizontal (dead battery = jump start...get it?), or finger traverse it in from the left. But these feel contrived and don't really add quality to an otherwise continuous, semi-pumpy, well-protected lead.
Start on the blocks 10' L of Looper and step L onto the face at a 1" deep, right angling corner. Once you're established on the face, it's straight up.
Normal rack to 2 or 3", but mostly it's cams up to 1" in the horizontals. Gear anchor on the ledge at the top.
