Description [Suggest Change]

This climb offers some of the best situations on the crag.

1. Climb up the prominent crack until possible to move into a groove which is followed for a short distance until the ledge and belay.

2. Move right to a stance on the pinnacle and then below a wide crack. Move up into the crack and follow it to the stance on Kipling Groove.

3. Climb up then traverse to a small overhung stance. Continue up a shallow crack then move around the arete, which is followed up until possible to move left. When possible move right onto the wall and then finish directly up.

As an Englishman living in Colorado, and having climbed Gimmer String twice, I can tell you that I think that it is about 5.9. Jul 7, 2015
