Start on Peanut Gallery ledge, and hand traverse right across the horizontal crack that splits the west face of Gibraltar Rock. Instant exposure. Crack takes gear from 1-3 inches. Enter the alcove at the bottom of the left facing corner, and stem and climb your way up the corner, which takes smaller gear. Towards the top of the corner, the crack gets about 6" wide. Face holds help to keep the difficulty down through the OW section. A 2-bolt belay is conveniently located atop the corner, and can be seen in the photo.
An optional first pitch can be added by climbing the loose blocky slabs below and to the left of 'The Nose'. Climb up and left following the path of least resistance to Peanut Gallery ledge.
