This is the direct line that shares the anchor of Wimpy-Gilman Ridge(5.3).

A worth while route that climbs a somewhat technical face up nice rock. It will probably be a popular toprope route thanks to the access from Wimpy-Gilman.


Left of Wimpy-Gilman in the right hand gully, climb straight up to the anchors on that route.

Fun route on good crimps and some nice underclings/sidepulls. If 5.7 is your limit, you can toprope this after leading the Wimpy-Gilman ridge

One odd thing--there is no crack. For me hardest moves were at the bottom
