Description 

West facing. Rather than starting in the crack itself, begin this climb on the schist face just right of the crack (you will begin moving right to left until you are established in the crack). Follow the crack about 100' to a ledge and proceed up and left from there to the bolted anchors.
This climb is great for the beginning trad climber and is also sometimes used as an easier variation to the first pitch of GG2W.

Location 

Located 30' uphill from the landmark chimney. The slanted crack is located just left of the first pitch of GG2W.

Protection 

0.4 - #2, Nuts, Long slings
