Description 

An amazing steep free route up a beautiful gently overhanging wall with mostly good rock. Contact us if you want details and be prepared to bring your A game.

Location 

See the topo photo. GI starts in a right facing corner system under overhanging vine climbing (J1) a few hundred yards left of the prominent water trickling down the wall. It is hard to see the corner system from the ground. If you go a bit past the water to the right you may find some tent platforms against the wall.

Protection 

Full rack with a lot of stuff. Leave aid gear at home, this would be very hard and time consuming to aid due to prominence of spaced horizontal bands.
