Tom Michael pitch 3 Heaven's Gate.
This is the region lying between Earwax Wall and Sport Wall. Although most routes are pretty stiff if completely done, they often have more moderate first pitches that can be sampled.
After the trail first reaches the Upper Wall, scramble up and left past Davis Holland. The left-arching thin crack on a white wall is Dana's Arch.

This route is basically a 3 pitch extension to the first pitch of Lamplighter.P1(5.10c). Lamplighter, it is a steep looking wide crack, with many good holds to supplement. After the chimney follow a crack system slightly right past a couple bolts. Don't belay at the first anchor you see! Keep heading right another 20 feet to another two bolt anchor. I thought this was the best pitch on the route.P2(5.11a). Follow Bolts over the bulge directly above the belay to an edgy face.P3(5.10+). More...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
