Climbs right of Craving for Pink through decent rock. Just steep enough to stay on you. Bolts and pro (cams to 1.5" tri's and brass if you want to feel extra safe) lead through some interesting moves to anchor.


Left of Craving for Pink on East Face of Gephart-Dufty Fin. Easiest approach - rap in from top of GD. Alternatively - head up Great Chimney to base of the wall.


3 bolts and gear. Bolt anchor at top.

I climbed this about a month ago, and I don't think it is worth the approach. We climbed both pitches of Judgment Seat, and then rapped down to get to this climb. The rock quality is poor (a foothold broke under me, even though I tested it). Both my partner and I think it is more in the range of 5.9R. Is it hidden? YES! Is it a gem? There are much better routes in the area. I give it 1 1/2 stars out of 4.
