Description 

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.

This route is in the Gray Dick at 5.2. I must agree with the rating of 5.4 above; it's not, by any stretch of the imagination, a 5.2. I would also say PG-13 to R for the first pitch.
