Stumbled upon this climb while exploring this area of the canyon, looked up saw two pitons in a super thin seam that was reminiscent of the Green A... the Ruckman guide gives it one star, 3 pitches, at 11a. Does anyone have any info on this? Is the crux on the first pitch or? Alex Quitiquit

The Pearly Gates starts out as a slab with a pin? and a couple of bolts that Brian Smoot did on lead. Don't blow the mantle at the upper bolt. From there a second pitch goes up through a couple of overlaps and grooves. Steve Hong did the 3rd pitch and therefore claimed the route. I've never completed the third pitch but its a lot harder than .11a and funky. Worth giving hell a few times though. I'd happily go work it with you on a cooler day. The routes over there can be a little stressful at times but figuring out the tricks to them seems to be the key. I don't have that one down yet. at all. tenesmus

Actually, I scraped up my elbow but we waited half an hour for light and then went up again. tenesmus
