Description:

Start up a crack off the left side of Memorial Ledge. Memorial Ledge is at the far North side of Broadway ledge (the ledge that lower apron climbs top out on). Climb the crack into a nice corner and some potential easy face moves on the arete at the top. Top out to a bolt anchor on the large boulder at the top.

5 out of 5 stars Icing on the cake!

We did this route after topping out on St. Vitus Dance. It a was a delightful sequence of sweet finger locks, smears and a little liebacking...refreshingly pleasant after the 2 or 3 O/W pitches of St. Vitus.
