Description

After securing your belayer to the second large eyebolt on Tourist Gully, begin the climb up thin, hollow, flaky, Garden-type slab climbing to a small bulge near the second piton. From there, you can progress over the bulge straight through or do a funky right layback. A few more 5.9 moves will get you to the last bolt before a scary runout left traverse to the anchors. Don't be scared.... It's not as bad as it sounds (as long as you don't fall).

Location

Off of the Tourist Gully, this is the first route to the left of Skip It or Clip it, which is the obvious line of pitons every few feet.

Protection

A handful of QDs is all you need for the 6 drilled pins. There is a fixed anchor at the top that is in good shape for Garden standards.

Micah, you beat me to it! Dammit! Ha ha.

6 drilled pins. The route traverses up and left from the third pin (just above the bulge). Nov 4, 2010
