Rebecca dedicated the route to a lost friend - Nig...


Face climby crux to varied fingers to hands and liebacking. Slightly less than vertical.


This route angles up the slab just right of Run Like Hell.


#00 and #0 nice for the crux. Then varied up to 3.5". A bolt protects a slightly soft part.

This climb protects with a varied rack, but bring 2-4 black aliens for the bottom section (small wires might also help).

If you are not psyched to lead the thin crack at the bottom, you can TR this climb by finishing Run Like Hell and then swinging/traversing over to the top of Wish You Were Here and climbing the last 20'. Just make sure to place some directionals.

Fun, thin balancy climbing with lots of face holds. Didn't seem 5.11 to me, especially compared to the 5.11 cracks here.

Placed two awesome nuts on this fun and interesting route. Be sure to watch the end of your ropes if using a 60m, as it just reaches the ground.
