Description

On the right side of Checkered Demon, next to 'Take a Hike' 12d, is an amazing series of dirt-red patina plates. Gigantor begins on a 25 ft. high flake / ledge and climbs through these plates directly to the top of the feature. The climb is characterized by long, powerful moves between the plates, balance intensive footwork and a spicy finish.

Few good rests exist, and the climbing tends to get more difficult as you gain altitude. Unlike its neighbor 'Take a Hike' this climb is generally free of birds nests.
