P1 5.9 G -- Face climb using thin feet and crimpy hands, generally following the bolt line (right) to gain a good horizontal crack. Move left to a shallow crescent shaped feature (* variation), then follow another horizontal crack to the arete for the corner of Brightly Colored Males. Step around the arete and into the corner (above the tree) to finish on Brightly Colored Men.

(* variation) 5.12a G -- Instead of moving left into Brightly Colored Males face climb up following the bolts to the top.


10 feet right of the obvious corner for Brightly Colored Males, below a bolt.


Appears the 5.12 variation is bolted, and the non-bolted parts of the 5.9 route wander into a nearby G route with trad options.

Anchor for brightly Colored Males is directly above this route, so it's easy to top rope.
