Find the overhanging roof cracks in the alcove on the right (South) side of Quarry Wall. Going further to your right would take you to the For Real Canyon. The first two thirds of the route goes at 5.6, and the business is short, but stout. There are three options for surmounting the roof, and all go at around the same difficulty. Easily protected and fun.


This is on the South end of Quarry Wall.


Trad. There are no bolt anchors, so bring gear to build one. You can easily third class to the anchors for AROUND THE CORNER, located in the For Real Canyon.
