Description 

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Side.


Getting There 

Park on the east side of the formation or the main parking area. From the main parking area, walk past North Gateway Rock to South Gateway just across the paved trail. Hike up established trails to get to your route.

This climb is located in the middle of the Gash, about 50 feet left of Candyman. It is a steep and sustained sport climb protected by fixed pins. The rock looks loose, but it's actually decent. From the ground, this climb looks pretty scary. It's about 20 feet to the 1st pin, then there's another somewhat runout section between the 3rd and 4th pins, combined with the sandy nature of the feet since it rarely gets climbed, also the fact that the walls are sort of narrow here, and i...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
