Cody on Once Were Warriors and Amy B. on ...


A high first bolt is reached via easy climbing then more fun face climbing to the steep finish on big holds.


Listed as route #10 on the Gallows Edge Main Wall photo topo.


4 bolts to a chain anchor with carabiners. Please don't steal the carabiners and enjoy the safety and convenience.

The hardware store carabiners on this route's anchor were worn about 1/3 of the way through. I removed them today. Since there were rings in the last links, I did not add carabiners. This anchor is now the same type/style as 99 Red Balloons.

Another nice route at the Gallow's Edge. Feels a little cruxy near the top, but do a little searching and you'll find some goodies!

Agreed, take your time in finding the right holds and the grade is accurate.
