DescriptionAn overhanging, powerful, and sequential face climb. This route rises from the wreckage of rusted vehicles in the gully below Gibraltar rock's main south face.
A reachy and bouldery start (crux?) leads to the first of four bolts. A stick-clip is advised, or maybe just a really good spotter to keep you from tumbling down the hillside if you blow it. Sustained, pumpy climbing with big moves between good holds leads to the anchor.
Due to the location of the anchor, I don't think this route is easily top-roped.
