Description:

Great Expectations is located down and left of Sleeping Princess (25m right of Crystal Ether) and takes the short dihedral that begins 5m off the deck. Start on the crack in the middle of the face and then move right to bolt (crux) and up the dihedral to the roof. Once at the roof one can move right and over over the roof (5.8 or easy 5.9) or left around the block (big reach 5.9+) A short cruxy route... excellent start to a day!

Descent Options:

Lower or rap from hangers at the top of either finish.. or walk off to the right (trail)

4 out of 5 stars Great Expectations... Fulfilled

This climb was sick. Good crack start and then cross the crux over to the right to get under the roof of an overhang ledge and use fingerholds in the crack to make your way up. Super fun climb, one of my favorites!
