This is an excellent pitch that climbs the steep headwall between P-2 of "Wild Ginger Root" and "Two In Agreement". Of special note is that both WGR's first pitch and this one tend to dry before anything else on this part of the wall. Both pitches are in the mid 11 range as well, making for a good sustained 2 pitch outing.

Start by climbing Two In Agreement to the first bolt. From here move up and slightly left to a shelf and the first bolt of "common ground". Make funky moves out left to get into a shallow groove and a reachy clip. Continue up using brows on the left and edges on the right to gain a good hold and 3rd bolt. Move up the cool rail and past two more bolts. At the last bolt, it is easiest to move left a little on small but good edges to gain the ledge with the flake and a 2 bolt belay/rap anchor. 100'.


Climbs the steep wall between P-2 of "Wild Ginger Root" and "Two In Agreement".


Light rack for the start. No gear above the first bolt.
