Description:

Start: At the top of the trail from the carriage road, between Gory Thumb and Country Roads, at a crack below the prominent 'V' notch. Pitch 1: 5.7 PG 80 ft. Climb the crack to the base of a left-facing corner, move left and up to a large left-facing corner below the V. Climb the corner to the V, up through the V, and up to a ledge (rap bolts & chains). Pitch 2: 5.1 PG 120 ft. Pitch 3: 5.8 g 40 ft. Funny thing: This route is NOT named for a V feature. It's adapted from the german accent of the first ascensionists. "We Three" is the actual name of the route.

Descent Options:

Go right to rap station for rappel back to pitch one's bolt anchors. Two 50M ropes needed.

4 out of 5 stars Wild, and fun

Led 1st pitch only. Actually thought the face leading up to the V notch was harder. Stemmed the V with pro at the bottom. Def recommend stemming the V.
