Due to rockfall, duration unknown
DescriptionGangway is a new route on the buttress established by Peter Croft with some help from Marty Lewis. I haven't climbed the route but since Marty e-mailed me this beta I thought I would share it with every one.
The first pitch is, according to Marty, the best start option for Ghostrider. 4 new bolts and a little bit of gear. Wandering face on good rock to a ledge with a belay.
Not shown on the topo is the fourth pitch, which has bolts and gear to a two bolt anchor.
- Also goes at 5.11a AO if not up to freeing the 2nd pitch.
