My belay ledge. Incredible exposure, bomber gear, ...

The Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst
wall has good easy routes on either side - both Southern Pillar and Northern Pillar
are excellent excursions for beginners.
Start up easy terrain just left of Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst
, working right and up into large left-facing dihedrals. Finding the easiest line requires a little thought as you climb through corners and overhangs. You'll end up at the ledge atop Madame G's.
Just left of the Madame G's area.
Descent: bolted rap station at the front, north side of the ledge on top of Madame G's.
A small rack should suffice.

Goodness, this was gardening all the way up. Very dirty and vegetated. That said, it was fun, easy and felt a bit like adventure climbing. I wouldn't do it again!
(We were looking for an easy lead for my climbing partner)

Definitely NOT for beginning leaders (the easiest line wanders around bushes in the middle of P2) or timid seconds (P2 is very exposed for the grade). The Grey Dick says 5.2 s/b 5.5 That said, I loved it! Try Northern Pillar for beginners.
