Description 

This climb is on the left side of the crag. Start up easy ledges to a short corner. at its top, move left onto the slab and climb past a staircased series of horizontal cracks/seams to the top.

The GMB refers to the "Good Morning Boner" or "morning wood" in a continuation of the naming theme for the crag.

Location 

Left side of the main crag.

Protection 

Originally a gear climb with 2 bolts. Additional bolts were added by the FA party in the early 2000s - there are now a total of 5. Some additional gear can be useful, particularly a purple (#0) TCU or #3 Rock, and red Tricam.

Alternatively, a couple blue Aliens and a 0.5 Camelot are appropriate and useful to supplement the bolts.
