Brave Valkyrie is the corner on the left, in the alcove to the left of and behind the Dis-Mantel block. Easy Virgin starts on the block of stone to the right. The route has decent climbing, and the corner is definitely enjoyable for a 5.3 leader.
P1: Climb the large block of stone to a ledge. (5.0, 40', PG)
P2: Climb up and right to a pine tree. Move up to the left-facing corner to the GT Ledge. (5.3, 100', PG)
It's probably easiest just to single-rope rappel to the ledge and then rappel the last 40'. A 60 meter rope will reach the ledge, but only with the added stretch of a climber on rappel.
