Description

This is a good route on the North side of Gateway Rock. It ascends a wide crack that is also the start of Men At Work but continues up and left. The crack leads to a small pedestal where you can rest before starting the hard climbing. Traverse left across a series of potholes protected by drilled pins. After about 25', head straight up on thin face holds (crux) to a bolted anchor above. The pitch is 90'. Ric Geiman's book calls this route 10+, and it may have been when Ed Webster did the first ascent but it has become very slick at the crux and some of the holds have worn away making it very difficult for 5.10....

Protection

8 or 9 quickdraws and some large cams for the start.
