Craving For Pink (and Hidden Gem) on the East faci...


Nice finger crack right of Hidden Gem. Short and fun route on surprisingly decent rock.


Right of Hidden Gem on East Face of Gephart-Dufty Fin. Easiest approach - rap in from top of GD. Alternatively - head up Great Chimney to base of the wall.


Standard Seneca rack minus the larger pieces to a 2 bolt anchor shared by Hidden Gem

Some loose rock in a few places, though we removed a lot of it. Bolts at the top need to be reworked as the right bolt stud is too short for the hanger and nut.

Okay route to hit on a packed weekend, particularly in the summer because it's rather cool in the shade and the breeze.

Broken upward left angling crack system.

Easier way to get there now is to go up Great Chimney to newly installed rap anchors. Climb Back Scratcher of Window on to the West to reach the set of anchors. From those anchors, climb up the grungy gulley (clip off a few branches on your way down) to the start of the crack proper.
