About 10 left of the Coke Bottle (big red rock) is none other than the Walt's Wall Route. Climb the easy crack (5.4) to the first belay (P1). Traverse 15 left to the base of a right leaning ramp and climb the ramp (not the chimney!) with 2 aging bolts to the chains (5.2)(P2). Climb the slab to the right of the chains to the next set of chains (5.4)(P3), or go left to where there is a newer bolt hanger and do Jake's Variation (5.5) which has 3 bolts and is an exercise in friction and balance for the first 8 feet, at which point it becomes knob city until its flat enough to literally walk up.
Rap from the bolts (with a single 50 stop at each belay, with double 60's you can get all the way to the ground), or descend to the right from the bolts if there are people below you.

I lead this route for a friends first time rock climbing. This is a good route for teaching beginners how to place gear. I have led it many times since then and usually choose to run without gear from the second belay station all the way to the top out. If you choose to protect it stay in the corner to the far right, here you will find a few small placements.
Three pitches, each with something different to offer. 3rd pitch was a little scary I suppose, with basically no protection but a hollow little flake. Wish we could have summited, but it was getting dark. Led to great camping, and a local brewery was having a party. Free beer, my favorite brand!
