DescriptionThe lower 2/3 (the white area) is really dirty, there are seams and cracks throughout, and many of the places you want to grab feel like the rock is in a socket; dubious rock. Someone should go over it with a pressure washer or something (condition as of Aug. 2006).
If that wasn't enough, the overhang eats rope; the rope will almost always catch in the cracks on the edge. You will spend more time dealing with rope-drag on lead than you will climbing.
...and is the misspelling of "Gnat" intentional?
