Gloria is a short but stunning thin crack pitch situated in a beautiful and shady alcove. Great location to get out of the sun and away from the crowds. Difficult section about mid-height but the crux is at the top of the crack where the jams pinch off and good foot work is a must. A little reachy to get the bolts.
Walk North past Reynolds hill and through a nice aspen grove on a well defined trail. Look for a giant scooped boulder on the right side of the trail. Leave the trail just past the boulder and walk North and a little East on a faint path. The Gloria alcove is up to the right from this trail and is hard to see because of the trees. Start bushwhacking and scrambling upwards and you will eventually find the alcove.
Small TCUs, a set of stoppers, and a #2 Camalot for a perfect pod below the crux section.
