Description Suggest change

Another classic beginner route with fun moves and a cool line. The name is a play on the classic Whitney-Gilman Ridge on Cannon Cliff. Though not as exposed, it does bare a slight resemblance to that route.

Follow the ridge from the mouth of the gully up and to the left to quick clip anchors. A new route has been added directly up to share the same anchor, if you top rope here please use draws so as not to wear out the quick clips. Also, due to the sharply angling nature of the route, it is best to clean the draws by seconding.

Location Suggest change

The wall on the right as you walk up in to the gully, you will see the bolts following the ridge up and right.

Protection Suggest change

8 bolts to quick clips. As Ward Smith wrote in his guidebook "Be sure to clip all the bolts for an inexperienced second, as it trends to the left."
