Insignificant But There

This is a decent little route to the left of the Practice Slab on the northwest side of South Gateway Rock.
Climb a ramp to a left-angling corner/roof with a drilled piton then crank over the overhang. Continue up the left side of the Practice Slab to the fixed anchors and rappel or walk off.
I placed a red C3 Camalot and a #13 Stopper on the ramp below the pin. Just above the pin you can place an ok #1 Camalot. On the Practice Slab you can place a #0.5, #0.75, and #4 Camalots, though the climbing up there is easy.
I'm sure many would just climb this using one quickdraw, but I was glad to place some gear.
