This route shares a blocky start with Poaching in the Sun, then immediately heads left to the roof. Pick holds wisely as underneath the roof is brittle. Climb the face staying on the left side of the face until the crux 3/4 the way up on the lighter brown face. Pull through the thinner holds to gain better hands and eventually top out.

Descent Options:

This route follows the left side of the face of Black Wall. Top out and hike back to the base.

3 out of 5 stars Fun Climbing through some brittle holds...

Similar to Poaching in the Sun, I broke a number of holds on the way up, but sufficient solid holds exist on the route. There's a fun low "roof" then thin moves on the left face 3/4 up before topping out. The view from the top is great.
