Description 

Traverse the right arete of the Gypsy Face to the top, then mantle over. Start seated at a horizontal edge that will be at (seated) eye level.

NOTE: In the guide book this problem is listed as yellow difficulty, meaning most likely in the V6-V8 range, possibly plus or minus a grade. On 150503, however, I ripped off a 1/4 pad crimp/pinch that I was trying to use to get through the crux. It left behind a very good 3/4 pad crimp and now the climb feels no harder than V5.

a couple pads
