Description Suggest change

This is a good link up of the first pitch of Immaculate Conception, and the second pitch of Son of Immaculate Virgin.

The start is located at a creaky flake just right of Son of Immaculate Virgin's right-facing corner. Begin by climbing the flake and pulling a short roof to a ledge. Continue straight up the face towards a slung block and belay here (or on gear above).

For a second pitch, climb straight up the face following the best clean holds (trend right; some might find this section a little run out...it gets a PG rating in the Williams guide) before jug-hauling the last bit to the GT ledge. Rap to the ground in two ropes, or to the slung block with one.

Overall a nice (2 star - Williams) route to do in you are in the area.

Protection Suggest change

Mostly standard gear...saving small stuff (blue and black aliens) for the second pitch. One rap with doubles or two raps with a single.
