Description:

This popular climb starts 20 feet to the right of Minty at left facing blocks/chimney. Climb straight up the path of least resistance to belay at a ledge with a tree (90 feet). From the left edge of the ledge, climb up a right facing corner to a small roof. Traverse right under the roof then up to the GT ledge. The 3rd pitch climbs a left facing corner then up and to the right to easier terrain. The 2d pitch is excellent as is the start of the 3rd.

4 out of 5 stars fun, easy and happy

Although on P2 there was one section that would not be trivial for a new leader. Maybe we were off route? Had to do P3 as there are no longer rings and slings at the top of p2 (tree is dead). If you do P3, finsh the climb, walk right and take a VERY steep trail down (with down climbing required) to the Madame G's belay. YOu cannot see the chain anchors from the trail. Look for a couple of BIG trees down below you. The anchors are on the the rock facing the trees. There is an intermediate set of anchors if you do not have doubles.
