The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber Details

Description

Another great problem put up in the infancy of Mt. Evans bouldering. Begin from a sit start matched on a RH gaston down low in a talus hole with a crappy left foot to start. After a few moves, you can exit right for V6 ... OR ... for the true line and full points ascend the steep overhang up and left over an arete.

Location

The Gallery is located in an alcove located on the opposite side of the boulder which hosts Black Streak and Peasants Into Leaders. Walk around the back side of this huge boulder, then squeeze through a slot to arrive in the alcove. The Gallery ascends an overhang on the right when you arrive in the alcove, starting at a low right hand gaston from a sit.

Protection

A few Organics and a spotter, due to the talus landing.

To get the 8 points you have to do the left exit. The right exit is probably 5 or 6.

FYI the starting hold is not a low jug. It's more of a good gaston edge with the right hand and a crappy, slopey foot for the left foot.

This problem has pretty good movement despite a bit of choss. Sep 17, 2010

Chip,
I was looking at this problem yesterday, and there appear to be two exits. One left and one right (no straight up). The left looks harder. FYI.
