|A neglected route that has some good climbing. A bit blocky and bushy at the start, but the face climbing above is quite nice.|

|P1 and 2 were fun but we could not find any pro on P3 off the GT so we bailed. I'm pretty sure we were in the right spot. Anyone know how?|

A fantastic 5.5 with an unforgettable finish.
Kurtz - the first few moves off the GT Ledge are unprotected. The start of P3 isn't obvious. P2 ends by traversing left on the GT ledge to the second of three pine trees. The 2nd tree is gnarled growing horizontally at your feet. The 3rd tree is a large rap station, 15 ft to the left. P2 starts immediately right of the second pine tree. There's a ceiling above with an obvious exit about 5 ft to the right. One burly move will get you off the GT Ledge, then angle right to the exit point of the ceiling.
