Some climbs look good but suck. Some climbs look like they suck but don't. This is one the latter. A fine outing for the beginning climber. About 140' right of Airy Aria and 120' left of Double Crack lies what appears to be a hideous, wet, vegetated corner. P1: The first pitch is a nice surprise - clean white rock on the buttress just right of the ugly chimney. Easy climbing leads to a nice belay ledge. P2: The second pitch looks nasty but the climbing is quite fun - a ladder of good holds on the left wall allows you to avoid ever entering the dank chimney. A classic Gunks pitch - steep but easy. A little vegetated in the last 20' but not enough to ruin the climb. P3: You could add a quality 3rd pitch by traversing left to the 5.5 pitch above the GT Ledge on Lisa.

4 out of 5 stars definitely fun!

We walked over to this because all the classics were already taken...It was super fun! Sammy led the first pitch, I led the second. The "chimney" had great gear and was really easy climbing with a great view.
