Description 

Start beneath a left facing corner downhill (right) from Up Jump Spring.

P1: Climb the left facing corner for about 15 feet until you can move right onto a sloping ledge. Clip the first bolt of Gerrytromp, and continue right. Follow a horizontal crack until a vertical crack intersects it. Follow the vertical hand crack to a gear-belay beneath a right facing corner.

P2: Layback up the corner as it curves and becomes a roof. Pass the roof on the right, then follow easier terrain up and left to the the 4 bolt anchor at the top of Gerrytromp.

Pitch 1 & 2 can be combined into a 200ft rope stretcher, but you had better be ready for some rope drag . . .

Location 

This route is located on the Center Right of Spring Dome.

A fun way to do this route is to head straight up to the right facing thin corner lieback directly (P2 above), climbing past a single bolt and avoid the higher traverse left to the corner mentioned in the description of P1.

This makes it easier to complete in one pitch to the anchor as well. Maybe 5.7?
