Up crack on the right side of face, leading up to the prominent left-facing dihedral. Not really necessary to clip the one rusty bolt, as there is a very obvious Blue Camalot placement along the crack near same level. Save some of the large pieces for the anchor.

Descent Options:

Traverse down and left to rap slings atop Through The Looking Glass.

3 out of 5 stars As the Wind Blows

Led 5 crack routes at Gilligan's on this day. This is a decent trad pitch by Jtree standards and for the grade. Over 100' up a corner. Rap Through the Looking Glass. With James from Sac.
