DescriptionThis route pulls through the large alcove and overhang on the left-hand side of the main Gibraltar formation.
Start next to "the Nose." Climb a crack to a large alcove. The crux of the route climbs the steep face left of the corner. The corner itself is very off-width and very hard. Pull the roof on the left side for full-value or bypass the roof to the right.
The middle of the route is marked by a large ledge. A second crux is pulling up off of the ledge onto tiny face holds (5.8/5.9). From here, runout face climbing (5.6) leads to the top of the formation.
When top-roping, be very careful. The route is almost exactly 100 feet long and the base of the cliff falls away on one side.
