Description

The obvious S shaped crack on the east side of the Tombstone. If you follow the standard approach along the west side of the Grey Giant, this route will be just out of view on the left flank of the Tombstone.Climb up easy rock to a bolt, then move right into the crack. Set some thin gear for a sequency, traversing crux. Soon the crack angles straight up and eases a bit, but a second crux comes near the top: thin laybacking with tricky gear on perfect rock. A compelling line, with strenuous climbing and technical gear. I didn't lead this, but felt it was _PG_ at the crux. An excellent climb, and a hard lead for the grade.Same rickety old anchor as noted in the other route descriptions.
