Gouda climb, identified by the licheny slab leadin...


Climb the slab to the roof. Put in some mediocre protection in unreliable rock, and pull the roof (crux) past a small pine. Climb more slab to a belay tree.


The easiest way to find this is to locate the popular and obvious right-leaning crack of Easter Time Too. Walk back rightwards past a huge detached block (Zachariah), up a short hill, then walk approximately right 150 feet or so. Look for the 30 foot slab and the small pine just above the roof.


Standard 'Gunks rack.

This is one or two decent moves, with mediocre pro at best, sandwiched by 40' of licheny 5.0 slab.

It seemed obvious to me that the one or two decent moves are finished by grabbing the tree, since there were no other holds and the tree is rather in the way, but neither the guide nor this entry mention using the tree. YMMV.

My fault, it seemed obvious that grabbing the tree was the way to go so I didn't mention it.
By the way, last year at Squamish I stayed at Sea to Sky. Despite the grand sound of the name it's just someone who rents room in her house; cheap, comfortable. On Airbnb.
