Near the left edge of the south face of Short Wall there is a thin system of crack and seam. Climb this, staying in the obvious line. The climb is reasonably mellow and protected for most of it's length.


A single set of nuts including RP's and a set of TCU's would make this a reasonable lead - or TR it.

If one is solid at the grade, and gear placement, this is a good lead. I wouldn't recommend this for the run of the mill .10a leader.

Finally got the nerve to lead this today after years of wanting to. This is a really good climb and the pro was all there with a little work.

I found TCU's and small offset TCU's pretty handy through a #1 camalot, I didn't see any good spots for small brass. Currently there are two bolts on top to belay.

Lots of interesting moves not like other climbs -- especially foot jams, but not only that.
