Description

This climb is near the east end of the Gap on the south facing side. It is the left of three routes on the hunk of rock where Shotgun Baptism (10c) and 12 Gauge Conversion (9/TR) are located. Cimbing is easy up to the third bolt where a bulge is encountered. Pull through the bulge clip one more bolt on your way to the anchors.

Protection

4 bolts, bolted anchor

Very good route that is well protected. To keep things interesting, start directly below first bolt at overhang. At upper bulge, clip last bolt then pull over on very good handholds. Felt safe and fun. Mar 22, 2010
I climbed this route on 11/26/14 and it was missing chains on the anchors. Unless you're topping out, you have to traverse to the anchors on Shotgun Baptism to rappel/ clean. Nov 29, 2014

This route is not a good top-rope, unless you extend the anchor over the lip, and then you kind of miss the coolness of pulling over the top. Top roping off draws (clearly people do this) will wear out your rope. The top part is well protected though, and a fall is clean, so it is really a great lead. Jul 17, 2015

I found two quickdraws at the top of the route today (Feb 16, 2017). Message me if you think they are yours. Feb 16, 2017

This is a fun route. The crux is definitely the top, though the start is a bit more challenging if you don't use the boulder to the left. Not a great route to lower the climber on. Better to Rap. The rock up top has a lot of sharp edges that your rope runs over if lowering or TRing. Jan 14, 2018

Agreed...Cambron. Boulder usage weakens the climb. May 18, 2018
