Description Suggest change

A nice warmup for the other great South Face climbs, but not a casual route for the grade. Put thoughts like "this doesn't feel like 5.6" out of your mind and enjoy the friction climbing.

Starting below right-slanting crack, follow it up and right; after the crack peters out, continue straight up on mainly friction moves to the tree ledge above. If you don't feel like rapping at this point, you can move to the left end of the ledge to the start of Afterbirth (which will take you to the Gemini rap station).

Location Suggest change

Starts about 25' left of Left Up at an obvious slanting crack. Rap from rap rings at the ledge.

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium gear; tricams are handy.
