Description:

Most only climb the first pitch; the upper pitches are loose. Excellent first pitch. 100 feet left of the Gelsa boulder pile is a beautiful right facing corner. Climb this to a roof, traverse right(crux) and then pump over the bulge to the belay. Then angle left past a corner and up to a ledge. Last pitch angles right across the face to the outside corner and up to the top.

3 out of 5 stars Polished

It's really not that fun anymore. It's too polished.

2 out of 5 stars P2

Did P2 from the Gelsa corner. Very awkward move off the ground up to much easier ground. Don't think I want to do that again. Pretty dirty and chossy through the top.

3 out of 5 stars not bad

Fun corner, ok traverse. Two pins make it fairly easy.

2 out of 5 stars This is just so polished

I really don't need to do this climb again. Right foot smears feel insecure due to polish. It's burly and not that much fun anymore.

3 out of 5 stars Super polished

Not nearly as fun as I remembered it to be. It's sustained and I found the footing to be insecure/polished. for me the easiest part was the traverse
