Brenna, working hard to figure this one out.


Good Friday follows the fainter right-leaning crack to the right of Easter Time Too. While it's most easily climbed as a toprope after climbing Easter Time, it's also a worthy though heady lead (it's quite PG, though perhaps not quite PG-13; be good at small nuts). The climbing is mostly thin face, with a few finger/tip locks thrown in for fun.

Climb the crack, heading leftwards at the top to the Easter Time Too bolted anchor.

There are three additional pitches, though they're likely to be vertical rock gardening: P2 is described as breaking through overhangs above, and onto a ledge with a cedar tree, 50 feet at 5.8. P3 reads: climb right up to the ceiling with a short left-facing corner. Clear the ceiling, and continue up the overhanging face above to the large ledge. 100 feet. 5.9+. P4: 30 feet of meandering and muscling through jungles, 5.4 to the clifftop.


Standard Gunks rack up to 2", with an emphasis on the smaller stuff.

I only did the first pitch. The route takes small gear for the start- green alien and small nuts. The climbing and gear get better after the bottom half. You can always practice on TR, which is easy to set up after climbing Eastertime.

This was a great 5.9 to the chains. I found it to be a balance climb rather than burly. Delicate feet, gastons, crimps, and side pulls.
