Description

The Gate Keeper sits in front of the Pillar of Hope, just a few feet to the northeast. The wall faces northeast and so will see some sunshine in the morning but is in shade most of the day. It is distinguished by a large concave feature to the right of center, and a couple smaller such dishes, one to the left and another above. Although this wall is only 30’ high at best, it is home to three very good routes that are well-protected on negative ground. Like elsewhere in the Cemetery, the quality of rock is very good.

Getting There

The Gate Keeper is in the central part of the Cemetery, just in front of the Pillar of Hope. Approach as for the Pillar of Hope or walk south from the Tombstones.
