Description:

Three variations. Start: On the GT ledge at the top of the first pitch of C. C. K. Pitch 1: Climb straight up to the overhang, traverse right about 8 feet (easier if shorter), and move up to join the regular route (5.8). Continue straight up through the overhangs and rejoin the regular route at the crack below the flake (5.7~5.8). Climb the crack and flake to the overhang. Move straight up to clear the first overhang to a stance below the roof. Traverse left a few feet, then continue up to the top (5.9).

Descent Options:

Rap off using slings with rap rings on trees.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb

Left exit is really fun. Looks a little improbable when you are up there, but, it goes. There are just enough feet as you move left and the hands get better as you go. Somewhat commiting

5 out of 5 stars Liked it so much last week, I did it again

Lots and lots of fun. The direct version is so much better than the regular version. Great climbing to the roof, pull the roof and go.

4 out of 5 stars first Gunks climb

My first time at Gunks, first climb, first rappel. Followed Noah.
Short, tough traverse followed by interesting overhang section on second pitch.
