This route follows a prominent left-facing corner at the right end of the Weeping Wall. Pitch 1 goes up a short, awkward corner to a good ledge. Pitch 2 (5.8) goes up the unaesthetic corner above, with somewhat tricky protection. Now you are at the base of a huge dihedral. Climb up the dihedral (a lot of face climbing, with small gear in the crack), follow the corner as it arches left, carefully place protection, and do the crux mantle to the top of the climb.


Standard rack, with plenty of small gear.

Wow. It was like walking on the moon-lots of friction climbing. most Pro was thin or not confidence inspiring. The pro I used at the mantle finish was solid, tricky but at my feet. There was an alternate placement higher up but my buddy popped it when he took a short flyer. Be solid in the grade before attempting this one.
