Take the line of least resistance up the huge, left-facing corner 75 feet right of Easy V, then traverse out right (5.7) to a bolted belay on the arete. Traverse far right up and slightly down horizontals (5.7 at the beginning) and up to a steep face (somewhat sustained 5.7) which is climbed to the GT ledge. Scramble up the big right-facing corner to the top.

climbed with dave on a cold, cold november day. he led P1 and i finally got to onsight P2. what a great pitch!! really enjoyed the traverse- thin and thoughtful...route finding and pro are certainly not obvious, but all there if you are observant. the only thing i had heard about the pitch was the traverse...so the finishing crack/headwall at the top of the pitch really surprised me- thrilling last moves!
