Route Summary | Ascent Notes (3)
Rich Perch, Russ Clune
Regular gunks rack
15 feet to the right of Snake.
P1 Climb straight up the face to a bush and a right-facing flake. Step left a foot or two and climb the left side of the short slab to a small ledge. Find a short, right-facing corner. If you don't step left, you are going up 5.6R/X rated face. Over the small roof at the corner's top, climb the steep face (crux), then trend up and right to the GT ledge where Red Pillar tops out.
P2 and P3 are not recommended. P2 is a scramble to a big corner, 20 ft. P3 is 5.7R/X, Diagonal up the face, left, hit a band of shale then traverse left to under an overhang and around the corner on to the face and up to the top.
Go to the Sente area, then walk right about 65 feet. The start is indistinct, but you should be about 15-20 feet right of Snake: look for the laurel bush and a right-facing flake about 25 feet up. The initial face up to the ledge doesn't appear very inspiring, and it's not, but the climbing above it is quality.
Rap of Thin Slabs, two raps to the ground. It's also easy to walk just a bit north (right) to the bolted rappel line at Arrow.
