Description

Game of Thrones ascends a wandering path of least resistance to the summit. It is not super awesome in aesthetics or rock quality, but it definitely has some good sections and makes a quickie for those looking to bolster their numbers.

P1. Find the overhanging chimney crack on the northwest face. Climb the crux at 5.9+, then head up through the tower to the south side and a gear belay in the sun, 5.9+, 70' +/-.

P2. Wander up right past easy broken plates to a short hands section where you are forced to make some moves right on steeper ground. Head up to a subsummit, and sling the top of this for an anchor, 5.9, 70'+/-.

P3. Climb a bold 5.7 face to some gear and then more bold, easy climbing to the summit and a two bolt belay, 5.7, 30' +/-.

Location

Walk out to the Window Rock overlook for a good view. The start is on the opposite side of the tower from this viewpoint but you can see the upper two pitches. walk 150 yard left and fix a rope to decend the 5th class broken terrain. Walk and bushwalk to the base.

Rap one long 150' rappel to the base.

Protection

Two Ropes, alpine draws, nuts, singles from .3-#5 C4, Doubles from .3-#3
