Description:

Climb the orange blocky face 35 feet right of Shockley's to easier rock and an small tree (now a bolted belay). From the belay, climb up to an overhang that is bypassed on the right (loose rock - R) and up to the GT ledge. Climb up left of the obvious corner (High Corner), then traverse left at a roof (scary) to easier climbing and the top.

4 out of 5 stars Nice airy finish

Haven't done this in years. Used to be an "x" block on the third pitch (I used it as a foot). That's long gone. I thought p3 was airy, fun, juggy and a wee bit scary! So fun.

Great warm-up for Gunks 10s. Fun route. Nothing scary about this. Just pure fun time action that tickled my nutsack.
