Description

A really fun straight-up climb on the right side of the Gerdie Block. There are four sections to the climb: a ten-ish move to get established on the face, a nine-ish move on a micronut to get to the crux, a fun crux that may be done statically or dynamically, and easy-ish climbing to the top. I rated this as 10+, but the new Grey Dick has this as 11-.

Location

Start on the right edge of the main face of the Gerdie Block, just right of Dirty Gerdie, and climb straight up the thin crack. The arete is off.

Protection

Take micronuts (mandatory, imho), & a 3.5 camalot (3 will do, but 3.5 is bomber). The crux is well protected.

There is a 9 move before the crux that is protected by a good micronut. This move is harder if short & if the nut blows you may be in ground fall range.
