An interesting 1st pitch beginning 15ft right of Splashtic. Climb a ramp up right past a bulge (threaded runner to protect bulge) move up and left on thin climbing then right to a belay at the base of the huge corner (5.7+). Up the corner to the GT ledge. Follow the corner to ceilings ( V1, 2) then traverse far left until the top is gained easily.

Very different first pitch, not an easy climb and not an over abundance of gear. P2 was soaking wet and very poor quality rock, lots of loose stuff on the ledges. IN fact the party ahead of us was knocking quite a few rocks off as they ascended P2. P3 is great, lots of fun. Very exposed 5.5 moves over a great roof.
Bottom line: P1 is ok, P2 has poor rock quality, P3 is great
