Description

Climb the short right-facing corner or the overhangs to the left to a large corner with a piton. Move up to the large overhang.

From here the original route had a 5.7 finish.

A freeze in winter 2005 removed a giant block from the Tango Roof, inadvertently upgrading Gorilla to a 5.11+ finish.

Location

8 feet right of the large left-facing corner (Tango).

Protection

Standard rack. Note that shifting rock on the overhang poses potential danger for this route and may have altered the original grade (easier).

might be mistaken, but it looks like the block beneath the roof fell off recently...
If I am recalling this correctly, the route is gone. Nov 22, 2010
