Description Suggest change

Gravity's Rainbow climbs up to the left-facing corner and long undercling that is just right of the Right Torpedo Tube. The initial section is poorly protected 5.9 or 5.10- leading into the short, obvious, hanging corner about 30 feet up. Place gear, then launch up and left into an impressive undercling. The jams are OK to start, but as you move left, the rock swings out from underneath the feet...just as the jamming and underclinging gets hardest...very out-of-balance stuff, pumpy too. The irony here is you will never have wanted to get into one of the Tubes as badly as you will when you are about to barndoor off into space at the crux. Once in the Right Tube, slither, flex, and curse on much easier climbing to the top. See the Left Tube for descent beta.

Protection Suggest change

Wireds to something big for the upper part of the Right Tube. The last moves into The Tube are a bit exciting.
