  • Description 

    About 3 years ago, we wandered up this small face on an explore day. Shortly afterwards, a communication with Greg Hand, I believe, suggested this face had been done previously. Our conversation, as I recall, didn't lead to a name. Time has passed, and these old neurons may fizzle, so here's an entry...before senility.

    This face can be done in 2 ways 5.8 or 5.9. Just to the right of Gomer Pyle, there is a curious, bulbous face that drew the eye. The first is to climb the first half of Gomer Pyle. Move right onto a bulbous face with the 5.9ish crux turning a tiny bulge. Follow easy terrain to a ledge.

    Or start down and below at the base of the slab. Start on a nice slab, 5.8, the terrain eases in difficulty on the upper half.

    You can scramble down and right or rap off the tree.

    Kent or Greg, if you have more info or want to adopt this page, let me know.

    Location 

    Just to the right of Gomer Pyle. It's fairly close to the creek and faces fairly west.

    Protection 

    Standard rack.
