Description:

Begins at the top of a gully to the left of the Dat-Mantle/Dis-Mantle block. P1: Climb the large right facing corner past the small tree. Just before the overhang at the very top of the corner, traverse left out onto the face to a semi-hanging belay. P2: Diagonal up right a short ways, then climb straight up the face to a short, blocky left facing corner (listed incorrectly as a right facing corner in the Gray Dick), follow the obvious good holds up to the large pine tree belay/rap station.

3 out of 5 stars Little Wet, Little Run Out

Pitch 2 gets run out so place plenty of pro before it goes blank.

4 out of 5 stars P2 G-PG?? huh

First, I really liked this climb a lot, 2 completely different pitches. P1 was damp but well protected and it was fun climbing the dihedral. We meant to break it up in 2 pitches but I turned the corner to high and overshot the belay, so I kept going and did it in one long pitch.

Didn't have worry about running out of gear, because there was little to be found on p2. The climbing was quite good, fun 5.5 face climbing, but I didn't find much gear. It made this 5.6/7 leader just a little nervous. Unless I was blind, I don't see the G-PG that the guide book gives it.
