|Gus Fruh aka Fern Bar Area
An outstanding route for the area that involves some thin face climbing. Start right of Wyoming Women (a naturally protected crack climb which cleaves the Gus Fruh wall) under a small roof with a gap in it from the left side. Layback onto an incut directly beneath the left portion of the roof and clip the first bolt. This next move makes this route outstanding! Laying off that incut, highstep with the left onto the outer portion of the roof and rock up into a stance just above the roof. Follow the climb straight up through a wonderfully thin face.
This route was originally a top rope using the anchors from Wyoming Women.
This route can be located as one travels right down toward the Kingdom of Ging. The route is located immediately right of a large crack (Wyoming Women, 5.8) and starts under a small roof.
3 to 4 bolts plus anchors.

The crux over the bulge is some hard 5.9, but it's all easy sailing past that.

A one-move wonder to be sure, but it is a fun move.

To help find this one, there is a 2.0 mile green trail marker right in front of the big crack. This starts about 3 feet to the right of that
