Description 

This classic slab route goes up the center of the Weeping Wall, with two hanging belays en route. Pitch 2 (5.10A) is very sustained. Pitch 3 (5.10A) has the hardest move on the climb. It is in the sun until mid-afternoon.


Protection 

Mostly bolts, with one small cam or wired nut 15' off the ground, plus some long slings and a few cams for the belay at the top of the climb.

Really fun climb. P2 has a little bulge crux about half way up after some sustained climbing. We climbed it on a semi hot day, my feet were on fire! P3 was shorter and less sustained. I did not think it was harder than p2.

I placed a Yellow Alien and #1 camalot on the first pitch, and then slung the tree at the top. So that's the only gear you'll need. Use caution to follow the correct line of bolts on the second pitch - we ended up on the neighboring route (Duck Soup?) for a few bolts. Still went at about 5.10a :) And I had done this route many times years ago and still got lost!

good slab ride!
minimal rack beta: 1 #1 bd c4 cam, then 1 metolius blue mastercam down on P1, 5 shoulder sling draws, and 6 long quickdraws. I like shoulder slings on the first couple clips to minimize rope drag. Sling the big bomber tree atop P3 for anchor.
