 Put your knee in your ear and your foot in your mouth. Now you are doing the Mumbai Groove. Bombay Chimney, very good pro, and hillarous to watch.

On the Wailing Wall. Climb through the roof on the L-most crack. Finish on the blunt arete or thin crack to the right. Try not to whine as much as the 1st ascentionist.

The most obvious line on the wall. Good crack climbing leads to a spicey crux on the upper headwall.
