Fun mixed face climbing with a committing mantle crux move early in the pitch. Look for a good cam placement just before the mantle. One bolt protects the exposed opening moves.


Center of face on the left side of Heaven's Gate. See topo.


Stoppers, Doubles through 3", one bolt

A very fun trad route on good quality route. Good intro to placing horizontal protection and there's plenty of good placement available.
