Giddah is a perfectly lovely enjoyable pitch of 5.6, and is even appropriate for a first lead at that grade. It's not on the well-beaten path of routes, so you'll very likely find it open. The moves up to and around the white section of rock are an interesting puzzle, and you'll be glad you worked it out.

Step to the left side of the ledge and up into a shallow left-facing corner. Move up and right over a bulge/hang into the very nice right-facing layback. From there meander up and left to the tree (rings). Rap in one rope.

Some care should be taken to avoid rope drag.


The best way to find this is to find the White Pillar, and walk back right looking for the obvious hanging left-facing corner of Moxie. 40' left of Moxie is a section of tight-white rock with a bulge-y layback. This is Giddah. Start from a ledge just above the trail.


The first pitch is very well-protected 5.6. Dick's latest guide lists the route as 'R' for its upper pitches.
