Description Suggest change

Although you may be tempted to jump on this one from just right of Snelled Hook, you'd be missing some of the best climbing on this route as El Gancho is an interesting mix of slab, crack and face climbing. Scramble down the notch towards the start of By Hook or Crook. Climb the slab past a bolt to gain the short crack. The crux comes while working the crack up to plates on the right. Top out with an easy finish on large plates. Rappel or walk left to descend.

Location Suggest change

This is the third bolt line, counting from the climber's left.

Protection Suggest change

4 bolts, bolted anchor shared with By Hook or Crook
