Wes Anderson on the hard start of The Pillar.

Description 

The Pillar is a fun easier climb that's great for beginners. Climb up the pillar by either using ledges on the pillar itself or by using offwidth moves up the chimney between the pillar and the wall. Once on top of the pillar either go to the right of the staggered overhangs and up the face, or traverse left (or jump) under the overhangs to a pocket in the upper section of Catenary Crack. Whatever you do, don't get stuck under the overhangs. This variation is no fun.

I completely disagree. The overhangs are very fun. and a good variation.
