Description:

Start on the Sting Ledge at a lone belay bolt. Climb up and right from the bolt to gain a straight in handcrack that is right of the sharp left facing corner. Climb the crack to an overlap. Pull through the overlap (5.9ish) to a precarious stance, protect high, and make a difficult step left to another crack that is directly above the A-frame roof. Climb this crack to a rail, ride it left to a stance, then climb past two bolts (crux) to an anchor.

Descent Options:

Double rope rap

5 out of 5 stars Cosmopolitan Wall

Cleaner than Cooney-Norton, but just as sustained. Outstanding crack climbing involving all kinds of trickery.
