Description 

There is another reasonably protected line between Georgia Style and Elmo Amber Alert that turns out to have more interesting climbing than one might expect from the ground.

From Elmo Amber Alert, drop down into a slot. Start up on mellow edges aiming for a left-facing crack/dihedral on the opposite side of the flake of Elmo Amber Alert. #3.5 & #2 Camalots fit the crack/dihedral nicely. The next bit gets your attention as you will pull on this feldspar-rich horn (that you won't want to stand upon) to get out on the face. A few mildly spicy moves gets you up to a horizontal crack for pro. Gradually angle left to the P1 belay tree (120') as for Georgia Style. Note, the sling on this tree seems to have been removed.

To get off, you can continue up P2 of Georgia Style which is quite good or traverse nearly directly right (mostly exposed 3rd class) to another tree with a sling and link. Rap 80' to the ground.


Location 

This is between Georgia Style and Elmo Amber Alert.


Protection 

A rack to a #0.75 Camalot plus #2 & #3.5 Camalots works. A healthy selection of smaller cams is nice.
