Climb the same start as 'Manifest," then before the slab move left into a right-facing corner crack. Follow this crack to the anchors of the route "No Fruit;.


This starts up at the bolts of the 4th bolted route from the right at Left Wire crag.


Small standard rack up to a #3.5 Camalot.

Two things.... One it seems easier to clip the anchors for Manifest rather than No Fruit. (I clipped No Fruit, but the move left to clip the anchors is definitely harder than 5.6, going right looked like easy 5.5 face climbing for the Manifest anchors).

I also would say the route is harder than 5.6 for the start alone. I think the start is a solid 5.7. The crack itself is easy with really good jams, maybe 5.5-5.6, but the start and the end if you try to clip the No Fruit anchors makes the climb considerably harder.

I think the start is harder than 5.6. It is about 5.7 but only for a few moves.

The narrow room of the dihedral makes torquing your feet difficult, and you end up throwing the feet on opposite sides and not in the crack. Off-width hands for most of the route, few fist jams possible if you're bold. <--- We were losing light fast, so I anchored to Manifest and was not able to complete the original route to No Fruit's anchors.

The start can be a bit sketchy for those expecting a solid 5.6 trad route. The only REAL protection comes when you place gear after the start, nearly a ¼ of the way up. If you placed gear during the start and fell, unfortunately you'd probably deck.

I would say the real pro for this area is how long the wall receives sunlight (especially in the winter time). When High Wire gets shady, you can pop over to Left Wire if you're itching for one more climb.
