Hans Kraus, Bonnie Prudden, 1948
Standard Gunks rack
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.

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.
