Many folks have climbed up to Teacher's Lounge Ledge, on the Tower's North End, (via Patent Pending, New Wave or Broken Tree). Far fewer climbers have pursued the routes (Patent Pending, Assembly Line, Surfer Girl, Maid in the Shade) going up from there. No one had ever taken that thin corner crack, directly right of Assembly Line. One August day Bekah I nailed the corner. It was her 1st Aid Climb. It was NOT my first, nor last time at corrupting youth.
Find Your way up to Teacher's Lounge Ledge.
First Ascent; August 2008. Frank Sanders & Rebekah Kelly. Pretty Fun !!
Pitch 1 & Only. A3 (60 meters). Nail the crack directly right of ASSEMBLY LINE. Thin at the bottom, then widening up, about 60 ft. up. Continue until You can traverse right, climbing free, to the small ledge and Big Bolt Anchor on MAID IN THE SHADE.
Standard Aid Rack and a number of Blades & #1 Beaks. #1-#3 Friends & Big Nuts for up higher.
