Description:

An interesting and thoughtful pitch one crux move. Pitch three is also a good pitch. Pitch 1: 58- G 90 ft. Traverse to the right side of the overhang, move up right, and continue past a bolt (crux) to an overhang. Pass overhang on the left, step right and continue straight up to a ledge about 15 feet below some pine trees. Go right about 20 feet to Middle Earth's pine tree belay/rap station. Pitch 2: 5.2 PG 70 ft. Pitch 3: 5.5 PG 80 ft. The final pitch pulls a roof somewhere off the GT ledge, but you're better off finishing on Bombs Away Dream Baby or Middle Earth.

3 out of 5 stars Nice short crux

Somewhat reminiscent of the crux of Arrow, only with an easier move and a iffy bolt. A nice climb, worth doing if you are in the area.

2 out of 5 stars Not my favorite climb

I thought it had a couple of tricky face moves protected by one old bolt. Not a great climb.

Cool climb. My first Gunks 8 as a 2nd, and some strange reason, I managed through the crux ok. Followed Mike F.
