BETA PHOTO: A very few of the many routes on George


This is the best way to get to the George routes located to the east of the arete. It is a quick and easy trad route, but there are a couple of nice moves. Once on top you have legions of sport routes to tickle your fancy.


Two or three pieces. Medium cams placed in the large crack to the right work best.


The route is located just to the left of the gully that starts George. This is located about 30 feet up from The Kitchen.

Yeah, it's there...the thin crack to the right is MUCH better.

Felt significantly easier than 5.9. Though short, the route was more fun than I thought it would be. I placed just a few medium-sized pieces, and I slung a horn, too.

I thought this climb was a lot of fun. The move out from under the roof onto the second part of the slab is especially interesting. I agree with it didn't feel particularly hard, there were plenty of good holds. You have to think about what you're doing a little bit, but no one move is particularly difficult.

short and easy. Felt more like a 5.7. fun move over the roof. I used c4 #1 #3 #4 and a x4 #.4 you can also sling a horn if you want.
