From 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.


The obvious cracks on the orange face on the left side of the Ribs block, right of Arch.


Small/micro cams, brassies
