BETA PHOTO: Direct start

Description 

This climbs the face directly below the first belay station on Perhaps. It works the 2-tiered left-facing step/corner. It has a bouldery beginning, then works up the seams until a small ledge can be traversed right. Finally a face climb up, and a mantle onto the ledge with easy moves the rest of the way. The route isn't too bad, however, the rock is rice-y. If it got climbed more it would be a nice start to Gordon's Hangover, albeit very runout.

Protection 

2 chains are set for the anchors, and one can place a small piece or 2 down low to protect the crux.

A couple quick moves near the ground - then easy to the belay. Skips the first pitch and is probably easier than the traverse right of the first pitch. A nice way to get to the harder climbing above
