Eric Rhicard fixing to pull the crux.


Climb past 4 bolts then follow gear and weakness up leftward to large ledge. Hard thin face climbing past 3 bolts up headwall with ankle busting possibility lead to the anchors. If you really want to do these moves, bring your belayer up to ledge so he/she can belay you without 100 feet of rope stretch.
One can also follow a 5.9 crack off the left edge of the ledge. This is the top of Gnice Storm.


7 routes from the left. Just past obvious broken dihedral. Starts off the right edge of a big flat ledge.


4 bolts, gear.

I did this to the ledge then backed off the upper face as it was thin and harder than 11- (might be a reach issue) and finishing to the left was fun. Will try it again some time as I liked the bottom half.
