Description

Start on a black face just left of a scary-looking, detached pillar and work up left of the bolt line, following a crack. As the crack runs out and turns into a small roof, work up and right. The crux comes at the fourth bolt, a delicate move up the face, avoiding the pillar. Using the pillar downgrades the route by a half grade. Continue up the bolt line on easier ground to a two bolt anchor. Rappel to descend.

Location

Gambino is the line of bolts just left of the detached pillar and 20’ right of The Sweepings.

Protection

7 bolts, bolt anchor.

Carl and I did add a couple of quick-links to the anchor for a easier time on the rope for rappelling. Jan 23, 2011

Awesome! Thanks, Dave! Thanks, Carl! For anyone who had previously noted the lack of hangers on this route, as of January 2010, the hangers have been replaced by the FA team. Jan 24, 2011

If anyone has the time or hardware (including myself), it would be nice to add either another set of quicklinks or, even better, a set of chains with an odd number of links. Although the current set of quicklinks is better than nothing, single quicklinks on anchors will twist the heck out of your rope. Dec 13, 2012
Third bolt needs to be tightened with a wrench - spinning as of 3/10/18. Mar 12, 2018
