Description 

Climb shattered but easy rock to the base of a 6-foot roof with a finger crack out it. Pull the roof to a horn at the lip (crux), then follow the crack as it diagonals right past a small tree to a wad of slings on a horn (an old rap anchor used by climbers descending slabs east from Long John Wall).

Led ground-up.


Location 

This route is located on the south face of Long John Wall tower, right of and below Weevil's Walk and The Wizard. It can be approached from the top of Washington Irving, or by climbing slabs west of the Kloof Alcove.


Protection 

Wires to 2". Rappel 75 feet from the wad 'o slings back to the slabs.
