Description:

Named for a white and yellow flower in the lily family, that according to Homer's Odyssey grows in abundance in the hereafter. Start at a large, yellow right-facing corner, 190 feet right of Dry Martiini, and 120 feet left of Beginner's Delight, then exit left across loose rock to a belay. Jog left, then right, and on past the GT ledge, to the shrubs.

4 out of 5 stars slippery when wet

great corner climb. It was a bit wet which made a few moves interesting but well protected.

5 out of 5 stars really fun climbing

Used the Welcome to the Gunks tree instead of all the way to GT ledge. Watch for rope drag...
