Description:

I did the last pitch of this, which pulls a 5.8 roof above the GT ledge, directly above the Ribs/Ribless rappel bolts, and then continues on easier rock to the top. As a variation, the easier rock can be made more interesting by moving left (traverse low on grass then place gear high, to protect your second) to a 5.5 layback move on the corner above Arch.

4 out of 5 stars cool variation on P1 Arch.

Dana led this climb and i followed. we started on P1 of Arch and then went right and up to follow the crack right through the overhang. great pump on that overhang, but a really fun climb glad i was able to get on it.

After doing Ribless, I led the last pitch of this climb, which pulls a 5.8 roof above the GT ledge, directly above the Ribs/Ribless rappel bolts, and then continues on easier rock to the top. As a variation, the easier rock can be made more interesting by moving left (traverse low on grass then place gear high, to protect your second) to a 5.5 layback move on the corner above Arch.
