Description

To date the most core of the gap routes. Good rock and stimulating & creative climbing make this an extremely rewarding route. Falling on this route as with all gap routes is definately not in your best interest. Completeing any of these routes is extremely rewarding but this one is super rewarding.

Location

The route begins at the obvious steep gash in the center of the north face of the gap. Two to three steep pitches reveals an amazing belay ledge slightly to the right underneath an overhanging jam crack. To decend all routes, but glisade down the large recess to the climbers right of the routes. This brings you right to the road! Very nice.

Protection

Standard alpine rack of nuts, cams, & selection of pins

In fair weather the route is pretty chill. The aid pitch comes around pitch 4? I cleaned the crack full of bushes with my nut tool and goes free at 5.9. Awesome splitter for 25ft, clean rock crux at the top. Aug 31, 2017
