Thrash up and past 2 or 3 trees to the yellow patina face. Step out onto the face and clip a retro bolt. Slab your way up using really nice holds passing 2 more retro bolts, after the 3rd retro bolt keep cruising up to join the last 2 moves on the Groove pitch. From here pad your way up the ultra classic "Terror" pitch on Tingy's passing 3 bolts to Fudd Ledge.

This makes for a nice long continuous 120 foot pitch.


From the start of the 2nd pitch on Tingy's there is a tree shelf after a little roof. Instead of climbing up the Tingy's corner, thrash your way past the slung trees (rappel station). There is a good stance just above these trees and a hand crack that takes bomber cams, belay here.


QD's, #1 camalot or .75 camalot, a sling for the cam on the Groove. You can use a small TCU to protect the moves from the Groove to the "Terror" pitch (sling this too).

A #2 Camalot and #4 Metolius for the belay is nice.
