Description 

Going Ghandi is a bolted variation of the 2nd pitch of Tolle Route (aka Guide's Route). Climb the first pitch of Tolle Route (aka Guide's Route) and then take the bolted line out right. There is a 5.12 variation of this route that cuts right at the 3rd bolt... so if you want to climb Going Ghandi, take the left path of the right bolt line (that's a mouthful!).

The crux is a crimpy and balancy affair over the first roof. It took me multiple tries to figure out this move. The middle section is fun - though one of the clips is a little scary for those of us that aren't tall. There is a weird, difficult to read finishing move, so keep it together until the end.

You can continue up Blimpie (5.10b) for a great finishing pitch!
