Description:

This problem is located around the right side of the buttress at the top of the trail. Take the right fork when you get to the top and it will be the first line you encounter. Climb jugs to a tricky boulder problem on a blank looking face, then make a long move around an arete to easier climbing. 50 feet.

4 out of 5 stars (Rusty Bolts) Fun Rarely Climbed One At Military Wall

Starts with a big big throw to a sharp, shallow hold.
Then another big blind throw to what looks like a sloppy, horrible arete, but turns out to be a decent side-pull. I couldn't throw far enough to hit this side-pull until I found a tiny crimpy intermediate. Then when I got it, I promptly barn-doored off.

Once you get past these two starting cruxes, you just have to fight the pump to get to the anchors. I fell 25 feet from just beneath the chains. Then when I climbed up again, I got to a better clipping hold, and my belayer short roped me by about 2 inches. There I am, at the top, pulling up hard on the rope trying to get it up the last 2 inches to clip in, and I get short-roped 2 inches for a good 10-15 seconds. Still managed to clip in, but I thought I was going for another whip.
