An interesting line that escapes from the pedastal jutting out of the river in the middle of River Wall. Reach the pedastal by rock hopping across the river (impossible in spring/summer), access the right side of River Wall and boulder to the pedastal (also tricky in spring) or rappell from the top. Note: place draws on one side of rope while rappelling so the rope doesn't get fall into the drink. Belay off the pedastal anchor bolt and either place protection (small nut or 0.5 tricam) or run it out to the first bolt. After the first bolt, insecure climbing reaches a layback and undercling flake. Tricky route finding above leads to 15 foot easy run-out terrain to the top - a protectable crack is slightly right of the last bolt. A solid, and fun thinking man's route.
