Description

The Drug Wall is the smooth slab capped by a roof to the left of a gully on South Gateway Rock directly across from North Gateway Rock. Silver Spooon climbs past a few bolts and drilled angles up the slab and then traverses underneath the roof to the gully. This felt pretty hard for 5.5 slab (I thought it was harder than the Finger Ramp 5.7), and the landing is bad if you fall before the first bolt, but after that it protects pretty well. Easy sandstone slab climbing doesn't get much better than this.

Protection

Drilled angles and bolts protect this adequately, fixed anchors in the gully to rap.

Addendum: bring long, long slings if you want to toprope this.
