DescriptionTheodore climbs the southeast flank of Greyrock to the summit ridge in five pitches. A good, easy climb that starts in a wide crack framed by two small dihedrals on either side. The climb is by no means technically difficult, but combined with the lengthy approach, it is a tiring outing in the summer months.
P1. By far the most enjoyable pitch of the route. Climb the crack with good fist jams up to a comfortable belay ledge at the top of the crack.
P2. Angles up and left up a lower angle face crack to a smaller belay perch under a large overhang.
P3. Continues up and left of the large overhang on pretty non-descript terrain with a lot of lower fifth-class scrambling.
P4. Another enjoyable pitch up a low angle slab with good protection.
P5. A short scramble to the top.
Good multi-pitch route for the beginning trad leader.
