Getting the second bolt requires either a difficult awkward clip from below or you can do a few more moves, into ground fall range, to a better stance. Up higher there is a bolt right over a decent sized edge that juts out. The fall above there wouldn't be far but your ankle might not appreciate meeting that ledge.

This is my least favorite route at Stone Wall.

Agreed, watch moving to the second clip, hard dangerous move with groundfall.

The hardest moves are just above the first clip. By the time you are making the second clip a fall could put you close to the ground but you are less likely to fall at that point.

Overall a pretty cool route. Powerfull moves down low lead to technical balance intensive stuff up higher. When I did it the lack of chalk up higher made for interesting route finding.

Gotta recommend a stick clip.....my partner started this route and fell before getting the second bolt. Slammed square into me and knocked me damn near out......
