Up and right of "Gorgeous" arete is a deep Chimney/corridor.
This route climbs the outside right arete, past 7 bolts to a three bolt anchor.

The newest guide book out for the Gorge gives this climb a 10a which I thought was appropriate. Mar 1, 2008

I agree that the climb is 5.10a. Like all great routes it challenges at more than just the brute strength level. Apr 15, 2008

I'll second and third the 10a rating.

When I led it (May 08) it pushed the ceiling of my limit - I remember the start being reachy (I am 5'2") May 15, 2010

Funky and exciting start leads into an otherwise boring route. Sad, given the quality routes on both sides. Aug 10, 2011

A 5.9, with a 5.10 sequence at the start that's called a boulder problem, and some greasy slopers up higher that give a tennish feel. Maybe we should just drop the sandbag and call it a 10a (per the guidebook). Sep 19, 2014
