The top of the layback move.
This is a really fun line on the elegant L Face. It is the obvious line on the face...it just begs to be climbed. So much so that sometimes you just forget to put on your climbing shoes and you dance up.
Take the left-facing, wide, layback crack. You may be able to jam it, but it seemed less facile. Fire up for 3/4 the way. Get a great rest. Fire up and left for the top.
This is the obvious line on the face that begs to be climbed via laybacking.
This can be led with wide gear with a PG-13 bit at the top or a TR for better security.

Great climb. The graffiti is quite slippery, and there aren't many real footholds, but there are enough. Old school 5.6 for sure. Loose block after you exit the layback section just to climber's left, so don't knock it on your belayer!

Super fun climb. Tradable but with a 10-15' run out at the topout.

Great climb. Learned to layback on this route. Base was super super slick. Climbed on May 2011 while taking a trad anchor class. Set up anchors in a crack at the top of the climb using tri Cams and nuts.
Was dropped by my belay parter. You know who you are. : )
But what is an 8 foot fall between friends.
