Description:

Starts 30 feet left of Seal Test in a super intimidating gulley to a roof. Climb the right wall under the roof using pockets trending out towards the end of the roof. Some delicate 5.7 face moves bring you to 50 feet of wide crack climbing that doesn't require much offwidth technique due to face holds.

Descent Options:

Bolted anchors

4 out of 5 stars Awesome climb!

I thought this route was definitely unique for twall. Definitely bring bigger gear, had to runout the fist-off width low angle crack (scary) built an anchor and had #3,4,5 sent up for the real offwidth above. There was some webbing in a tree above super old. There are bolts which should reach with a 60m we rapped to seal test bolts and then down.

2 out of 5 stars I guess....

this is an OK route, definitely a change of pace from the rest of T-Wall climbing. Bring two #4's or the runout might be more than you bargained for.
