You can see it from the entrance road, yet seldom climbed. Incredible, left-leaning splitter up the face right of Walt's Wall start. Usually done as two pitches, divided by a big pod. Crux is the wretched wide-hand/fist flare at the start; then a 10+ offwidth section. Have your second send up extra fist-size gear before following. Exiting the pod is exciting; then 100 feet of sustained, difficult fists (10+). As a bad joke for blown forearms, the exit is thin hands. No top anchor. Rap 4th of July (165'+!) or Water Streak.

This is a superb line. I've climbed it maybe 5 times including one free solo in Oct 06'. It is simply one of the best at it's grade anywhere.
