DescriptionI think the Gumfighter is one of the prettiest lines around. It was certainly my favorite at Ship Rock, and Ship Rock remains one of my all-time favorite crags; so what more can I say. Dont be put off by the rating because a top rope can easily be set up by climbing its neighbor; Borrowed Time. It is also very easy to find because of where it is located; immediately to the right of Borrowed Time.
Crank up through a roof, passing a fixed pin, to where a bolt is encountered on a slab. It can be a little sketchy clipping the fixed-pin on lead, but suss out the beta ;-) From a stance at the base of the slab, either work your way straight up (thin!) or to the right and then up. Pass another fixed pin on your way to easier ground and the top. Enjoy.
