Description

From Gunsight Notch, climb the arete towards the South Peak until you are able to move onto the East Face on thin flakes. Climb around the Gryphon's Beak and finish on the regular Gunsight to South Peak route. Great exposure for a 5.4!

Location

Start at the Gunsight Notch. You can climb Banana and Debbie, scramble up ledges on the west side, or take the trail up the east side to Upper Broadway and scramble a short 5.0 to gain the notch. To descend use the standard South Peak rappel routes.

Protection

Standard Seneca Rack, eats passive pro.

This climb is really on the east face. I would rate it 5.6 I would say Candy Corner and Critter Crack are very comparable in rating. This climb scared me more then Castor, which is a 5.10, the first time I climbed it. Be ready for some of the best exposure in the East. Feb 20, 2009
