P1 (5.10c): start on high ledge as for Leopard Skin; clip its first 2 bolts, then veer left up an awkward slot, then straight up before a traverse sequence to the right, then continue up face before cutting left to step atop a big blocky ledge with bolted anchor (100'). P2 (5.8): go up face to a right-facing dihedral, continue up easy terrain to bolted anchor (70'). P3 (5.10c): go up face via slopey horizontals, then veer sharply to the right to base of a thin crack with a big hueco to its right. aim for the hueco and crank through the slighly overhanging bit. few more easy face moves to bolted anchor (80'). P4 (5.8): easy face climbing to the summit (80').
2 raps. At summit, scramble to the back and down and to climber's right to find rap rings on slings. Rappel down to big slopey ledge. Reach across a narrow gap to the next set of bolted rap anchor on vertical headwall facing the main wall. Rappel down

Combined this with Rat Race...swore off bad sandstone, particularly Rat Race and here I am leading trad on the crappiest route in Snow Canyon (Rat Race), but it did make for a great direct line to Gratitude which was quite bomber...nice route. 3rd pitch is the lead you want. Cheers.
