Description:

Many people's 1st wall. 5.8, C1. Climb to dinner ledge (3 pitches, 5.9 or 5.11, depending on the variation) and head over the Kor roof. If yer sleepin @ dinner ledge be forewarned that loose rock from the exit gulley lands SMAAACK in the MIDDLE of the upper "sleeping terrace. Somebody got nailed there. Sleep on the lower ledges. From Kor roof pitch, follow the slings. The upper half of the route follows a generally continuous crack system. Be careful abt loose rock in the exit gulley.
