Description:

Scramble up the gully to the right of Madam G's and belay below the face on the left side of the gully. Pro is thin and PG-13 for the first 30ft but gets better. Belay under a roof, step out left, pull the roof, navigate the bulges and roofs to the top, staying right of Madam G's.

3 out of 5 stars Interesting "wake up" climb, first thing in the AM

I thought this was harder than it looked like it was going to be. Big reach for this shorty on the 5.7 overhang. We ran 2 and 3 together, beats the crappy hanging belay below the overhang. Gotta do it again...felt hard this morning. I think it should feel soft for an 8. Not sure what was going oin.

3 out of 5 stars Not bad.

I linked pitches 1 and 2. Tiff led pitch 3. Definitely worth doing.

4 out of 5 stars nice pumpfest

P1 loses points because of the bushwhack to cross the gulley, and even if you could get to the belay tree, it's dead. P2 gets the points back with sustained steep and pumpy moves.
