Description:

This is a fun route, it gets a bit trickey on the traverse. Climb a short easy pitch to a ledge at the base of a huge corner system with ceilings at the top. Pitch 2 climbs the corner system and traverses left(towards a pin in the face) to a right facing corner, which is followed to the GT ledge. Pitch 3 climb some corner systems past a few overhangs to the top.

4 out of 5 stars First Gunks lead

Did the harder version of pitch 1 which was pretty fun. Strung p1&2 together which was quite a stretch. P3 was wicked fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb!

Very fun climb. It was one of my first traditional leads and I have good memories of it. I was aware of the traverse route finding and I still climbed about 10 ft. too far up! It was no problem down climbing though and I found the old pin and saw the, then obvious, ledge to go out to.

4 out of 5 stars tricky route finding

Followed by somewhat sparse gear on the traverse. That said, it's a delightful climb. Not sure I would put a Newb on it...
