DescriptionStrong contender for best v5 in GHSP.
When looking at the boulder from the trail, this is the stunning overhung roof/arete at the beginning of the dark "cave-like" passage.
Sit start low at the base of the steep arete matched in the nice jug rail. Make an huge move up high to the flat, smooth ledge. From that hold (the start for "Death in the Morning") follow very nice, rounded jugs and rails to the direct top.
Once at the huge jug at the lip, use the Liberty Boulder which is directly behind you to help with the top out.
(please PLEASE do not clean the ferns off this boulder to make a left top out possible. The top out works very well as-is. Just use the Liberty Boulder. The top out is not crux and will only hurt the plant life and potentially climber access if you remove this vegetation.)
