Description:

Off the GT ledge, 15 feet right of the Snake corner. You will see a clear path through the lichen. Looks easy from the ground, gets harder as you ascend. There is one spot where a ledge fall would be likely if you blow the thin face climbing. The gear is well below you by the time you finally hit a horizontal good enough for gear. Thin and facey. The book has this as PG.

Descent Options:

Rap off arrow bolts

3 out of 5 stars Thin and facey

With a potential for a ledge fall. Although the climbing is easier through the run out section, it's not a gimme. If you blow the moves, you are very close to the GT ledge. If you are comfortable on thin face climbing go for it. It's a very nice climb, I enjoyed it as a follower.
