BETA PHOTO: The view from the big ledge


Another route off the large ledge. Pretty fun climb.

Pitch 1+2: 300 feet of 5.1 slab.
Pitch 3: Slabby left-facing corner/groove.


20 feet right of Gothic Groove. From the base, look for a couple of bulges with corners bookending a big ledge. Once you get to the ledge it is obvious.


Pitch 1+2: some trad gear, sparse. Bolted anchors.
Pitch 3: Mostly bolts. Climbing up to the first bolt you can get a .75 in the weird indentation left of the groove proper.

Its confusing up in groove land. I like that stretch of rock- you pretty much can't go wrong up there.
