P1: Face climb upward following discontinuous cracks to a good stance.
P2: Climb left and upward to another good stance close to a corner and roof system.
P3: Traverse right avoiding the roof until one reaches a major weakness in the face.
P4: Follow the weakness to the top of the climb where one can unrope.


Start in the center of Gertch's Half Brother slightly left of a major weakness in the face.
Walk off left and continue down to the last rap of Gertch's Folly (probably old bolts).


Standard Organ trad rack. There may be a couple of old pitons on the route.
