This route starts on the easy, clean rock below a small corner leading to an arĂȘte. The face immediately left of this start is low-angled, grassy, and unappealing. Start directly below the shallow left-facing corner bearing two bolts. Follow the bolt line up to the arĂȘte, then on to the classic lieback, face moves, and the anchors.
Extension: A two-bolt extension that ends at a higher set of anchors adds a pumpy 5.10+ finish to this route. Clip the first set of anchors with a quickdraw then continue to the upper anchors. (Squeezing the Lemmon quality scale: 2 out of 3 stars.)


Upper left end of the wall.


8 bolts to the 1st anchor, 2 more to the top anchor.


Begin immediately right of the start for If I Had a Hammer, below the short, left-facing corner with a bolt at its base. This is the left of two bolt lines on the upper, leftmost face of the wall.

The first bolt is a little high but it is easy 5.6 climbing. Then the fun begins, great route.
