This beautiful line traverses the overhang at the far end of the Gallery, a few climbs to the right of The Gift. Hand over hand movement along a fantastic rail leads to a dynamic move followed shortly thereafter by a ginormous hueco rest. Continue the route with a creepy runout to homemade anchors on the adjacent wall to the right.


6 bolts, 2 anchors

For some reason I always thought this was "The Glitz"....

I thought that this was a lot of fun up until the last 10 feet. The end is pretty out of character compared to the rest of the route.

I thought this climb was great. Long move to the shark's fin. Fixed permadraws as of feb 2012

I think this route is the most classic route on the wall, except for the last ten feet, which pretty much suck.

Accidently pulled out the last bolt and chain draw clean from the rock...fyi.

P.S. Scared the S*@t out of me!!
