To explain how to walk off and up from the South Side of the GTL ledge is easier to do than to try and explain how to down climb from the top of the cliff.

From the South side of the GTL, ascend up at the point where the top of the cliff disappears and there are only trees. Here there is shorter cliff a few hundred feet up the hill. Go up here and left, but do not climb directly to the cliff (trying to exit straight up and right in the corner near a chimney is more difficult). You will come to a large flat topped sloping boulder just before the cliff face. The cliff in front has a chimney at the right and there is a right-facing corner on the left, which slopes down from left to right to make a ramp. Climb the ramp to the top. There is a chimney next to the ramp, which is more awkward then the ramp, though the chimney is more secure. The hard part of the chimney is turning around after you enter it, which is not fun especially when wet.


See the 4th class chimney in the Williams Guide.


None that I remember.
