|A few of the critical holds on this route appear to be reinforced with epoxy. Good climb regardless|

|Crank This use to be a better variation of this route. After bolt three (I recall) traverse right for a few more bolts. Longer and more sustained and well worth doing once you've walked down there.|

It's pretty easy to toprope the route. We used to rap off a solid manzanita bush about 20 feet over the anchor. The bush is on the path when coming down from the main face of Gibraltar.
Well, after looking at the photo on this page, perhaps the solid bush burned in the last fire. Give it a good kick before using and be sure to have all your affairs in order.
Note that you can preclip the first bolt on the route by climbing good holds slightly to the right of the actual (crank) start.
