The face on the left of Wiessner Slab contains an excellent 5.6. This was initially climbed by stepping left from the slab onto a ledge at mid-height. The more common line climbs the face below this ledge.

Start a bit left of the corner that marks the second half of the route. Climb up to a small roof and pull through onto the ledge above (crux). This can also be done further left, slightly easier. The pro is a bit hard to get in but generally good. Once on the ledge, traverse right to the corner and up to the top. There is a second crux near the end of the corner.


This ascends the face immediately left of Wiessner Slab.


Medium / small mostly

Spicey lead. The Fasulo guide gives it a 5.7+ I dunno if it's that hard but I'd say 5.6, maybe 5.7, is about right. You could definately make it harder or easier depending on when you stay on a face or move into a corner. Either way the pro is kind of far apart and not that confidence inspiring.
