4 out of 5 stars grateful for the ledge

I've really enjoyed getting on the left side of Gus Fruh lately. This climb was fun enough through the moderate climbing before the top, and I didn't find the rope drag terrible, even with short draws.
The move through the last roof is what stands out for me, and fortunately there's a nice ledge to stand on right before. After a few times going up a bit to scout, not seeing anything, and then climbing back down, I lunged for the slight bulge on the face a foot above the last bolt. It wasn't very positive but at least it wasn't polished. Shorter people may need to use a left crimp right at the lip. A tenuous mantle finished the climb.

4 out of 5 stars hard finish

I really enjoyed working this climb...it is very challenging at the top...very strength and technique intensive. I was very proud to get this climb!

3 out of 5 stars horrible rope drag

use long draws on all of the bolts under roofs and at #3 so that it hangs below the roof lip. It was horrible fighting up the cliff with so much rope drag - I could barely top out!
