5 out of 5 stars GU is the new

Park at the little pullout for Ashtar Command tower west of the guard shack just west of the big tunnel. Hike back to the tunnel then take the trail up climbers left. Follow it for a few 100 feet till you see it. You'll know it when you do for sure.
Yea after the first pitch I was gassed. The crack is solid hand jams the whole way. The first belay isn't comfy but solid. Second belay nice stance. Third belay is good too.
