The trick here is that P1 is quite interesting and only 5.8. P2 has the 5.9+ climbing, but many folks rap after P1 or finish on another climb.

P1 - Climb the left-facing flakes, then up the nose to some more flakes. Climb the second set of flakes to a nice ledge below some overhangs and a short, orange left-facing corner. Climb the corner to the overhang (crux) and step left to the outside edge of the corner, then straight up on big holds to the GT ledge or climb partially up the corner, then go up and right to a different corner, then up right around the corner on big holds, bypassing the overhang on the face to its right.


At some right-facing flakes near and just right of the large corner that is the start of Easy Verschneidung (Easy V).


Standard Gunks rack.

P1 is surprisingly fun, interesting and worth doing. Quite exposed during and after the crux.
