  • Description 

    Approach: A large orange buttress marks the Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst area. The Guide's Wall is a 50' high toprope wall just right. Triple Bulges begins on the right side of Guide's Wall at a wide, left-leaning crack (also first pitch of Twin Oaks).

    P1: Climb the crack to the big ledge atop the Guide's Wall. 5.3, 50'

    P2: Walk 10' right on the ledge. Face climb, trending right, 130' to the GT Ledge.

    You could rap here, but then you'd miss the white tiered overhangs right above the GT ledge, which are fun and well protected (fixed angle pin and middle sized camalots).

    From the clifftop, walk back left and rappel from bolts right of Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst.


    Protection 

    Traditional Gunks rack, medium cams mostly. A few old pins.

    I love this climb. Trending right on P2 rather than going straight up offers a nice alternative and gets you to the rappel tree without down climbing. Great pro at all 3 bulges.
