Description 

'Gizecht' is the 15' wide face bracketed by 'Couture' on the right and 'A Beer, Simon!' on the left. Despite some fun face climbing, I remember thinking, "This blows as a lead."

Location 

Located directly below the large Live Oak at the top where Wall 5 reaches full height (about a quarter of the way up the entire formation.

Protection 

Sketchy as the only opportunities for pro comes from shallow and flared horizontals which are few and far between; best done as a toprope with the large Oak as a stout anchor.
