PTK midway.


Jam the crack for three to four clips to an easy chossy mid section. Go up following 4 clips using the left face and right arete to the anchors.


Follow the trail past the main Mural Wall. Look for the obvious, red, vertical crack that faces the trail.


8 clips to anchors.

This climb seems to have a personality disorder. It starts with some crack climbing, then you want to follow the weakness of the rock up, but the bolts force you left to the face. The climbing is enjoyable but felt forced.
