Description

Starting from the low horizontal, undercling, jam and lunge your way up the left-arching crack at the far right-hand side of the keyhole cliff face. Holds continue above the crack and on the right-hand face to a dark hold 17 feet off the deck. Traverse off right and down climb the slabby face (very carefully) or drop to your pad. It's done.

I don't have a clue about the bouldering V-grades, but the Gill Crack got quite a bit harder after a chockstone a move or two up came out. Also, take the question mark off Gill's name; he definitely made the first ascent.

For those interested in a lead, the Gill Crack can be used as a direct (and logical) start to Katzenjammer, which means that if it is a "variation" of any climb, the climb should be Katzenjammer, not Brat. Feb 6, 2010

I second that, it felt like a 5.12ish crack move. The grey Willams guide shows this one as variation to Katzenjammer and grades it 5.11d. Oct 19, 2014
