Description 

Great climbing; it protects really well. Not sure where the crux might be. Although one has to scramble a bit to get to the first crack, there is nothing bad to say about this climb.


Location 

One of three classic climbs left of the Burnt Tree Ledge. Gambit is the center, corner climb (Sintisa to the left, Stalemate to the right). Climb the center crack of the lower wall to a sloping ledge. Climb the corner (overhanging) to the top.


Protection 

Single rack to # 2 camalot.

Had some wasp activity over Labor Day weekend. My partner got stung on the hand.
Pretty easy to see if they are active from the ground.

Dont let 10 grade keep ypu off this climb if you are just breaking into this grade. gear is solid. Probably no harder moves than pulling trinity roof which is 9... Not noticeably harder than crack up, either. Great climb!
