Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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 Suggest change

Take micronuts and microcams to protect the lower section; take a larger cam to protect the crux (3.5 camalot is bomber, but a 3 will do). The crux is well protected.
