Description

An fun variation/direct finish to the Ghirardelli 5.9 route. The second pitch (pitch 6 of the linkup) 5.6 handcrack/corner was the highlight of the whole Ghirardelli experience, IMO.

P5) From atop the 4th class P4 of Ghirardelli, instead of traversing out left around the tower, tackle the steep flakes/blocks above, just left of the tower's sharp arĂȘte. Belay at a large grassy ledge. 5.8

P6) Move out left on the grassy ledge to the clean and enjoyable hand-crack in a tight right-facing corner. Pull a small roof near it's top and onto the summit area. 100' or so of class 3 scrambling will get you onto the summit proper.

Location

Starts at the large ledge atop P4 of Ghirardelli.

Protection

Standard rack.
