The Optimistic Pessimist HVS 4c
[An enjoyable solo with the crux low down, 3 kb]10m. The thin pocketed seam right of The Perpetual Pessimist.

There is another route between The Perpetual Pessimist and The optimistic Pessimist that has independent climbing.. Start mid way between the two routes, as with the other routes on the left end of the wall the start is the crux with a lay away and small edges used to gain knobbly rock and a faint vertical crack which is followed past a yellow quartz patch to a direct finish between PP and OP. If it justifies a name then In Denial seems appropriate for the theme of names on the wall it is also In De Middle . Grade is about 5a and VS - it is a solo around 10 metres but easier after the start.

Looked nice from the ground, first few meters are tricky but then the climbings nice, not boringly easy either!
