Guilty Conscience Original starts on the right-angling ramp. The direct start goes straight up the face. Follow the bolt line and join Guilty Conscience at the 4th bolt. Gain the arete and climb the friction slab to the summit.

This route variation is not in Busse and Burr, but we ran into Mark Strege while climbing here and he told us about this cool variation.


The second to right most bolt line in the Outer Hall. Shares an anchorwith Little White Lies 5.9+ to the left.


6 bolts to anchor

Just climbed all 4 of the routes on this wall a few days ago. Nathan is 100% right, and I corrected the other information on Guilty Conscience Original to reflect that. I guess that I climbed this steeper schist band a year ago without knowing what it was... direct is definitely the way to go to start the Guilty Conscience arete. The original start is a vegetated ramp/crack system.
