Mega classic line up the right side of the Thermopylae Wall! Stretch or jump up to the first good hold and climb the right-leaning flake system up the overhanging wall, topping out on jugs after a high crux. The further right you top out, the more you'll be over nasty boulders below.
A sit start will add considerable difficulty but not necessarily considerable fun. You decide.
The Thermopylae Wall is about 150 feet uphill and slightly west of Stinkin' Slopers, and immediately downhill of Balance of Power. This would be a fine place to hold off a vast Persian army with a small band of Spartans. On the left side of this wall check out Dine in Hell and Table for 300.
3 or more pads. The landing is uneven but can be made safe with pads and diligent spotting.
Due to the newly groomed landing, Ryan is fearless...

Thanks to the person who fixed-ish the landing! Better but 3 pads would still be nice
