DescriptionFrom the FA party, Frank Minunni: This route got its name when Gary Garrett, an old Gunkie at that time, told us that it had already been done. I was pretty bummed at first but when I saw the smirk on his face I realized he was pulling my leg. I said, "Yeah, another vicious rumor." And there you have it.
An eye catching crack right of Arch, on the left side of the Ribs block. Several easier face moves lead into a beta-intensive crux (above micro gear) below the rooflet and the jug rail. Traverse right on this rail to the arete, climb the arete to the ledge. A very stiff onsight, but not an exceptionally dangerous route. Thoughtful, unusual climbing for the Gunks.
