1961, Yvon Chounard
Standard Gunks with some extra thin for first pitch.
About 50 feet right of Betty is a right facing corner capped by a roof. Up this to the roof, traverse left and pull the roof at the left end(crux). Set up a good belay and directionals for the second pitch which climbs the corner above the roof, to a rightward traverse and some more small roofs to the ledge. Climb the orange rock above to a bolt, swing the roof and up to the top. Three great pitches.

Followed my partner up pitch 1. Thought it was right on at 10d. Might have been soft, but that sort of thing just isn't my style. I initially took the lead on pitch 2, but could not figure out the crux. Did not want to just "throw" for the good horizontal until I got it and make a mockery of technique and style, so I lowered and let my partner get the clean ascent.
