Description:

Kelley's guide listed 'My Husband Is Going to Kill Me' and 'Start the Car'; about 10' left of 'Black Rain' on Tall Gray Wall uphill from Amphitheater, below a large pine tree up at the rim. Getting to the first small ledge is the crux, many good holds and footing all the way. Avoid the loose flake to the left and other loose rock towards top.

4 out of 5 stars Kicked my a$$

I did this route cleanly last weekend, not sure if I was just tired or picked the worst line ever, fell about 6 times. Got to the top eventually.
