Description:

This long pitch on very good rock starts climber's left of Exit Stage Right and Walk-a-Bunch on the Wafer's North side. Start between two trees and wander up a runout section, looking for a set of lose looking flakes @ 2/3 height. Climb up to a small tree in the face and then straight up to the top on steep rock with positive holds and solid rock. (And better pro). Chains up top.

Descent Options:

Use chains for a rap with a 70m rope or climb up and left above Wafer Caper (up and left along wafer ridge) and descend by walking around under the face.

4 out of 5 stars Heady

A great 10 testpiece. Gear in the middle is a bit sketch, consisting mostly of small wires and ballnutz. The loose flakes also are understated in their sketch-ness... The top section totaly redeems the climb - the wall ripples much like Songline, but without the ridiculously hard cruxes.
