|Green Valley Gap
A name such as this implies a few things.....for me, it says there is hope for Saint George yet.
Bolted with the drill in reverse, Sand Stoner Reverse still holds its share of big whippers. Smooth and potent, this overhung scoop has some of the best climbing at the gap. Requiring thought, this route isn't as dumb as it sounds. A combination of finding proper body position and a need to milk the rests will keep the aspiring climber from getting too high too fast. Big powerful moves connect good holds to great holds, plan out your sequence so you don't get burnt out.
Smoking hot! this route is better than it looks.
Sand Stoner Reverse is in the bowl at the entrance of the gap. It is the first route on the left, north facing side across from Puppet Strings.
Five bolts to an anchor.

Best climb at the gap. Very doable for the aspiring 12a climber.

This is definitely in my top favorite climbs. If you like reachy jugs you will love this! The first 5 or so moves are tough but it's a nice ride after that.

kip is absolutely right. first time on this and i loved great hold after great hold... way fun moves to get you up.. the only thing that stopped me was my lack of endurance... i need to get in shape, this one is fun, not too difficult to piece the moves but will test your endurance!
