Description:

Classic line on the Grey Giant. Long pitch with a difficult crux protected by tiny gear, then 80 feet of endurance jamming up the corner. Anchors are old and need to be replaced. Bring extra rappel webbing and plan on an approach time of 2 hours to get this part of the park.

5 out of 5 stars Wow! Wow!

Beautiful in this part of the park
It was my second time out to the Giant

There were 3 of us good thing
@ least 48 meeters of climbing
We rated the route more like 12A, there seems to be a piece of a hold missing
I Ernest secured the crux, lowered and climbed the 11d slab clean
Lowered off and handed the lead over to the 3 of our party

What a beautiful day

No one goes out there, Good!

Followed Josh. Fell off and pendulumned, conveniently bypassing the crux. Classic line but kind of awkward climbing. Plan on 2 hours to get our here.
