Description:

If cleaner, Gypsy would be three stars. Climb P1 of Recompense to a two-pin belay. Follow a corner up and left to a stance. Follow crack right to a birch tree, and into an excellent Right-facing corner, with a great view of the Prow roof, to the tree immediately Right of Recompense's finish.

3 out of 5 stars Gypsy

Yikes! Second pitch has some scary route finding above the right facing corner. I aided through the reachy finger traverse crux on p. 3 - irrationally scared of lobbing off and smashing into that perched block. Also aided one soaking wet move in the corner after that. The fourth pitch was nice. I swear that this was the only wet climb o the cliff today =(
