Gary leads Altered Scale.

Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit MORE INFO >>>


Stiff for the grade, Altered Scale has a nice variety of moves.

Starting on a ledge, pull some hard moves to the first bolt (stick clipping is a good option). Continue on easier ground to a thin section about midway; save some energy for pulling a sequency bulge near the top, then finish to the anchors.


Starts about 10' right of Trouble Clef.


Seven bolts, bolted anchors.
