Description 

Just left of Dirty Gerdie there is a right-slanting crack and ramp. Go up this to its top, then straight up (crux) to a small ledge. From there climb the left side of the face to the top.

Walk off and downclimb climber's left.

The rock in the crux area is a bit slick. It's not a destination climb (a short crux followed by some easy, generic 'Gunks face climbing), but it always seems to be unoccupied and there are certainly worse 5.8s around.

Location 

Left side of the Dirty Gerdie block.

Protection 

Standard 'Gunks rack.
