Warning: possible ongoing rockfall after major rockfall event. Details
On about Saturday, Aug. 27th, a massive rock fall event occurred in the central part of the crag. Although some climbers have since been there without incident, it may be wise to pick another location while conditions stabilize.
DescriptionElation is two routes left of Endless Bliss and just to the left of a tree near the base of the wall. Each pitch is solid 5.9, yet the two pitches are wildly different in character. This is one of my favorites at Gunshow.
P1. Begin by climbing a vertical, blocky face to anchors on the slab above. This is suprisingly interesting climbing which looks so-so from the ground, and is also somewhat inobvious and tricky.
P2. Head up the slab to the anchors above. I think the moves on this slab are better than anything on Endless Bliss, and are fairly continuous.
It would be possible to combine these in a single ptich, but I suspect rope drag would be an issue. Try to keep your ropes out of the tree when you rap.
