DescriptionScramble up some flakes and blocks to a point about 10 ft to the left of the start of route 1. The route starts here, work your way up a water chute thats about 30 ft in length, then make a long step to East Gruesome. Follow an obvious crack system to the summit from there.
East Gruesome has been called by Bob Kamps "The finest summit that the Conn's achieved. They pioneered an intricate and difficult route up the three hundred foot east face." In Bob's guidebook he chose not to describe the route, as to leave it a surprise for those who choose to climb it. I ask that you all would do the same as well.
LocationThe route is located 10 ft to the left of Route 1, which starts in the southeast corner of the spire four five gulley.
