|f. The Guides' Wall (Madame G's)
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)
