Description:

Climb the chimney behind the Frog's Head block(harder), the right side of the Frog's Head block, or the initial hand crack of Frog's Head (easier but better). Climb the yellow face above from the right side of the top of the Frog's Head block, then weave up the face above. Stop at the Frog's Head belay, or continue up right of Frog's Head to the GT ledge for the full effect. Nice pitch, but often busy since it crosses parts of Frog's Head AND Maria.

3 out of 5 stars Tough little chimney gives way to nice face

Protected well enough for me to consider leading this. Nice climb, even though it's a "squeeze job".

3 out of 5 stars Climbed this in the rain today

It was a steady drizzle, making the delicate face climbing that much harder. I greased off of a hand, managed to stay on the rock. It mattered not, I was on a TR. I find this climb thoughtful and thin in places, perhaps I didn't "wander" enough given the notes below.

3 out of 5 stars Thrutched my way up the chimney

Not Fun!!! Got on to the face and enjoyed very nice face climbing to the GT ledge. Recommend alternative start.
