Huong gangsta leanin' on Gangsta Lean!


This long left leaning corner system is very enjoyable. It starts in an awkward blocky corner crack up to a high first bolt. Pull past this to a stance at the base of the long ramp/corner. Follow this up and left to the anchors. Could be a little sporty if you're at your limit, but supplemental gear can be easily placed.


8 bolts, small gear up to 2" if desired, mussy hook anchors

Awesome route for the grade! The start gives it the appearance of being blocky and uninspiring--but the goodness can't be seen from the ground! As you gain height, each new traverse move appears improbable to be 5.8--but then you realize somehow it is.

Taking a few pieces of gear to supplement would not be out of order.
