Tip-toeing off the pedestal


Aside from the final 15 feet of jungle, this route is very clean, exciting and safe!

From the pedestal belay above P1 of Shit Creek, follow a hand-sized crack out right past the roof to a small right-facing corner, then up to a small overhang. Continue up right, following a crack/flake on the arete to an overhang. Escape left, and continue up the short but very lichened/dirty face to the GT ledge.

Beware of a large block that rests on the very edge of the GT ledge - it's very tempting to grab it to mantle onto the ledge. It definitely moves, and it would be scary and potentially unfortunate if someone yanked it loose while trying to squirm onto the ledge (and beware of climbers below!).

Make a gear anchor, then walk right to big oak tree rap station.


Climb P1 of Shit Creek to the sweet pedestal belay (perfect seat for two and awesome view of Skytop). Dissonance starts from here.


One old pin, a single rack to #2, small wires. The pro is good but strenuous to place!
