Description:

Starts 50 yards North (right) of Standard Route. Best to skip P1 and combine the first two pitches of Standard with the last pitch of the Penguin. True P1 climbs a thin, scrappy flow passing turf, saplings, and other crap to a ledge. P2 climbs a curtain, then into a thin runnel that is wicked fun (great stemming on verglass on the right) to the trees.
