DescriptionA Classic .Hike to the top of the brown wave, then from a cairn scramble about 300' diagonally up to the right to a large bush. Here one can downclimb a small crack into the gully and gain the slab. The climb starts up an open ramp about 20' below the crack.
P1) A bolt will be seen at about 20' up to the left. Climb about 20' past a second bolt then straight up the dark dyke to another bolt at about 40'. From here, go slightly right to double anchors. 200' 5.9+ R.
P2) From the belay, move out right to a bolt, then past this to enter an obvious groove. Follow this to another bolt then to double anchors. 200' 5.9+ R.
P3) Easier climbing up the slab above into the large chasm. After a short chimney break out right up yellow rock to a natural spike belay. 200' 5.6 R.
Here one can move down to the right and find the rap anchor of The Giraffe (or carry on up the next 3 easy pitches of The Giraffe to the summit and register). Rap to the right to the anchors on top of P2 of Commitment, and then two raps to the ground.
