A tricky and hard to read line with a tough clip or two. Climb a bulge that leads to crimps and a blind throw. Gain a rest and work left over steepening terrain towards a small roof. The final moves involve questionable climbing through friable sandstone. Hand and foot holds with limited life greet you at the end of this this route right before you want to start cursing.


Bitter Recriminations is the first route you come to when entering the Gap. It sits alone on the south side slightly raised off the floor. Do a small scramble and belay at the base.


Three or Four Bolts to a two-bolt anchor. Slings or a cordelette come in handy at the top as the anchor is set further back in more solid stone.

good short warmup route. From the ground up i thought clipping the 3rd will be difficult.. it turned out to be quite easy and the 4th was the hard one. was a committing, tough clip. fun route worth doing at least once... maybe not twice though.
