Description

This pitch is a variation to Something Interesting or Three Pines. It begins at the GT ledge.

Establish a belay on the right side of the large alcove above Something Interesting. From the obvious left-facing corner, hand traverse out to the hanging arete (hand-sized cams for protection are recommended, however pumpy they may be to place). Pull the lip in an interesting mantle move, and head up to easier ground.

The pitch has been graded everywhere from 5.8+ to 5.10a. Do it and decide for yourself! Or do it without regard to the grade, and enjoy the aesthetic pleasure of just being ... out there.

Location

Proceed to the base of the Mac Wall; look up. That's "it".

Protection

Mostly hand-sized cams, to a #3. Double ropes may make the route considerably more pleasant for your second.

A camera, for the belayer, is also a good idea (even better, a third party to take pictures).
