Gizunghas heads up the face area between the two Divine routes and Jacob's Ladder. About half way up, the route melds with JL and uses the same anchor as well. It may be looked as as an alternate (slightly more challenging) start to JL but IMO, much more fun with well-protected, sustained 8+ moves almost all the way up to the block ledge.


Second bolted route from the left.


7 bolts to chain anchors

Daryl, I see you're the FA but I did this route yesterday and it's got a total of 7 bolts which included the last few of Jacob's ladder.

Maybe I got it wrong but I don't think so.

This route seemed reachy and the sun was in my eyes. With those conditions I'm claiming it's harder than .8+ as indicated. :)
