Description:

This route is a fantastic, well protected 5.9+ and well worth doing. To the right of Physical Graffitti a vertical crack comes down through a roof. Ascend the face to this roof and pull through it, ascending up about 100' to the two bolt belay on Physical Graffitti (look left). From here, step back right into the crack and continue up Physical Graffitti. Variation 1: Climb the right leaning crack that starts just left of the primary start and join up with the crack above. This variation is slightly easier than the direct version (5.9)
