The route begins behind a large boulder about 70' to the right of West Point Crack. The first piton if reached by getting between the boulder and South Gateway Rock and climbing up and left on a steep ramp. From there, follow the obvious line where the white and red sandstone meet and form a crack/edge. This leads to a face climb protected by 4 pins straight up to double anchors. Rap from the anchors or continue up the second pitch.

I have never done the second pitch, but it is rated 5.8 and climbs up and left from the anchors. My guidebook says it goes over a ramp to a wide flake. Also, there is another climb listed in my book that traverses right from the anchors and is rated 5.10d.

  • **Warning*** I have never heard of anyone climbing Credibility Gap and not breaking off a piece of rock. This is the climb that convinced one of my climbing partners to get a helmet...not for leading the route but for belaying. The belayer is forced below the climber between the boulder and South Gateway Rock right in line with anything that gets knocked off.


A couple of fixed pitons in the crack followed by 4 drilled pins on the face climbing to double anchors.
