Moderate, 5.7 climbing for 150 feet leads to a ledge with a fir tree. Move to the right end of the ledge and surmount a small overhang, clipping one of the few bolts on the route to protect 5.9 climbing up and left to a long dihedral ending on the ledge the first ascensionists named Good Friday. From Good Friday, poorly protected 5.9 climbing continues up and right to a small ledge; from here more sparsely protected friction climbing trending slightly left leads to the top of the Grack. Descend by rappeling over Marginal, using two 50 meter ropes.
This climb might deserve an "X" rating, but I only gave it "R," due to the low angle and slick rock.
Starts a few feet right of the start for Marginal at a ledge with a couple of trees; an oak and a fir.
Very sparsely protected; only one bolt and small wires; light rack since placements are skimpy.

This route has climbing similar in nature to Marginal, but isn't as well protected. Only recommended for climbers secure on runout face/friction climbing. I'll not go back for seconds!
