Description

Why rappel back down from these routes when you can exit to the top?

From the tree atop Last Grapes / Pink Drainpipe head up gully 40 feet and then traverse left under a roof and then up. After too much rope drag belay. Head straight up easy ground aiming for a large dead tree, shared with El Whampo finish.

From here you have already begun the North Gully Descent. Probably does not take too much more time than rapelling back to your packs and although mellow it is quite enjoyable.

Location

Above Last Grapes and My Pink Half of the Drainpipe.

Protection

Not much is needed due to ease of climbing.
