According to Ken, he did not know of anyone trying the line prior to him placing the pins. We did this as a mini-adventurous way to finish our day not knowing that it "hadn't" been done.
The name comes from the fact that all marmots are either named "Phil" (the skinny Phil like ones) or "Guss" (the fat well... Guss like ones).
If any one did this before us, I will remove our shenanagans, but for now this is great finish to a great route.

|I finished this way up in August, and it was an awesome little way to finish with some sport crankin'! I also thought it was .11a or b. big move off a matched hold!|

|We finished with this variation, I assumed it was the actual finish of the route. Seems a little harder than 10c, at least in my opinion. Great way to end a spectacular route|
