Description

A beautiful line with thoughtful movement; a must-do for the grade!

Start same as P2 of Updraft/CCK (on the GT ledge), but head left towards a thin crack, which you'll follow to a no-hands stance in the sentry box. Stem your way out of the box and exit onto the steep face. Climb the pumpy face to a #2 horizontal, then move left towards the arete and easier ground.. Be careful mantling into the stem box, there might be a suspect flake or two. The top could use a scrubbing, but who really cares!

Location

The overhanging left wall of Updraft.

Protection

It's PG with c3s and small wires. Two .4s are nice. A WC superlight rock #1 fits like a puzzle piece to protect the stemming (good luck with anything else). A fixed nut at the top of the stem box has seen better days.
