Not exactly the most flattering name; nonetheless, a good route. The Ladder follows the obvious system of cracks on the right-hand side of the main Gibralter formation.

Step up onto the face, 5 feet right of an obvious crack. Climb up a few moves before traversing left to join the crack. Follow the crack until reaching an alcove and a large overhang. Traverse right or left around the roof using a decent ledge for your feet (5.4) OR pull directly up the right side of the overhang using insecure jams in the off-width crack (5.6/5.7). Either way, follow the crack to the top.


Medium to large gear (1/2" to 4").

Gear anchor--although some climbers use the bolts atop Mid-Face and clip a piece of gear in the crack as a directional.
