Description

This is a variation to Andrew's last pitch, off of the GT Ledge.

Starting just right of the major Twilight Zone corner, climb the easy face to a flaky right-facing corner to the overhang, then traverse right and up a groove to a ledge and left-facing flake. Take the flake to the overhang above, traverse left across a white face, and up into the V-notch (crux). Climb past the overhang to the top.

Rappel: head to climber's right. Three rappels from bolted anchors over No Glow will get you to the ground with a single rope.

Location

Same start as Andrew off of the GT Ledge.

Protection

Save a medium to large cam to make the crux G.

When I climbed this, the notch looked so much like V3 that I almost expected to climb it the same way. The holds through the notch are all like V3 ... but upside-down!

The rock just below the notch was a bit loose, if I recall. Aug 19, 2010

Wow, quite an exciting finish to Andrew! Traverse with teeny feet, get into the v-notch on crimpers, stem into the v-notch, and a big reach for this shorty. G-rate gear, though I did not see the pin in the v-notch. Jun 17, 2012
Really fun pitch. Not something that I would recommend as a finish to Andrew as it is significantly harder than that climb, but a very nice pitch to do when you are on GT over that way. I don't ever remember a pin in the the notch, but there are two lower down. That notch can be really tricky. 5.8 if done right, but can feel a bit harder if you're off a bit. Jun 18, 2012

Very nice worthwhile climb! Some lichen and loose rock but pro below the notch is solid. Sep 17, 2013

The P2 Andrew "gulley" is often wet. The holds on either side are pretty good so you can usually step across (L->R) avoiding the wet stuff. The rock above stays dry (where you cross back R->L). Nov 5, 2014
