BETA PHOTO: Matt leading P1 of Wop Stop, about to do the trick...

Description 

P1 is as described in the book: look for the obvious vertical slot for a yellow Alien. Then it's pretty much up the clean-looking swath of rock to the GT Ledge. The opening moves may well be 5.7 and if you're not 6' 6" tall, getting the key cam in that slot will be a challenge. Stick-clip anyone?

Location 

About 12' left of the boulder at the base near Keep on Struttin'. Look for the Alien slot midway up the slabby face.

Protection 

It ain't G rated pilgrim! Be prepared for PG (at best), and you'll want lots of small gear - tiny cams, double black-to-red Tricams etc. Oh, and less than clean rock. But you wanted an adventure...right?

We never did it before, so for the first pitch, 150 feet of 5.6 G sounded good on a busy weekend, right? Don't bother. My partner thought the start felt like 5.7 PG-13. Then the upper section had a thick coating of old lichen powder on it, you couldn't move without getting crap in your eyes. Then the GT ledge where he belayed from was literally coated in white vulture crap. Luckily it was dried vulture crap, but totally covered.

You forgot to add that there's not really any good gear for the anchor atop P1.
