Description 

Start of tallest line indicated where a waist-height hanging lip at the leftmost end of the slabby wall terminates. This slabby portion is on a tier lower than the tallest portion of cliff at this point laterally.

Boulder-problem, mantley start leads to techinal slab/face moves over crimps and rounded horizontals. Generally up, right, and up over the logical, less-lichen-covered path. Iron-cross move, mid traverse is the crux with two or three more hard moves following before gaining easier ground.

End up in the trees at the middle terrace. Belay from one or two healthy adolescent pine trees.

Mandatory small gear if leading.

There are at least two more boulder/TR lines right of this tallest section of cliff. They are both bouldery with V1-2ish cruxes.


Location 

Left of Wolfe Wall, right of Golden Arch. Lower tier.


Protection 

000 C3 or Red Ballnut in the first gear accepting horizontal about 20' up, then a couple small to medium cams.

Belay from top, rap from trees or walk around.

Although suggested by one of the Steele 'Olde Guarde' as a new line early this year, since climbing it I have been advised that this portion of cliff has likely seen prior ascents. In any case, there are many good, if short, TR or trad lines on this section of cliff.

this wall is immediately to the right of the cave feature that has the routes Evil Is and Jolly Roger. That cave feature is fairly obvious. This wall is also below a terrace where the start of the routes 5.8 Corner and Rustler are located.
