enjoying a perfect gunks summer day!


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 (fixed nut) onto the steep face. Climb the pumpy face to a #2 horizontal, then move left towards the arete onto easier ground and up to a fixed tricam/nut anchor. 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!


The overhanging left wall of Updraft.


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. I built the anchor in November 2016 but I'm cheap and just used what I had on hand. It's bomber but someone may wanna beef it up.
