Description 

Gandy is the small obvious spire in front of and just below Dos Chichis. This climbs the left arete on the formation past six bolts and a 1" piece between the first and second bolt. A fun and worthwhile route to do if in the area.

Protection 

6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. Easy scramble/downclimb off the backside.

for those wishing not to lead this (If there are any of you), it can be easily accessed from the backside with a few 4th class moves... and then TR'd...

I wouldn't call it an easy walk off. A fun route with a tricky finish getting over the overlap (5.9 one move). Well protected. You also have the choice of ignoring a couple of bolts and placing natural protection, but who can ignore a clip? Worth LEADING if in the area, and you've done the other face routes.

Fun movement, but a few too many loose plates for my taste. And I agree it's an easy walkoff.

Easy scramble/downclimb sounds more like it. It's not Class 1.

interesting, balance-y route, hollow flakes and loose edges can be disconcerting at times. Fun mantel to top out and great views

Fun, short route. Got a really good .75 in between the first and second bolts, though it's totally optional.
