|c. Frog's Head - the Arch
Jean's overlooked sister, which is well worth a burn. Nice crimpy crux with a bit of fun climbing up to it. The route name, like some others, comes from the bus that nearly drove off the hairpin turn.
P1- Same beginning as Jean. Climb the small left-facing corner to a small stance. Surf right then back left through a deceptive little sequence. From the main left-facing corner, do a balancy traverse right for about 15 feet under the roof. Crank the roof going up and left using a fantastic set of crimpers. Belay at the ledge above or rap if you so desire.
P2- A good mental challenge at 5.8 PG-R. Climb the short left-facing corner and continue up and slightly left, staying away from the easier climbing on Sixish. Worth doing at least once.
From the GT ledge, traverse left to the bolted rappel line left of Maria.
40 feet right of Maria and 15 feet right of Sixish, below the left side of the obvious roof.
Standard rack to 2". Microcams helpful.
