This extremely fun and challenging climb starts on the left side of a narrow low north-facing wall below the “God Head.” Climb up angling left past four bolts reaching a large ledge. A few difficult moves establishes you onto a steep overhanging wall that leads to two bulges and a short and easy run-out ramp to the top. Belay from two hangers. Rap "God Knows" or walk off by scrambling southeast and descending into the gulley. You can also rap west, down the main face for easier access to the next three climbs.

Thanks Geir.
Note: do not be enticed by chain anchors off left: continue straight up the face along the blunt arete to hangers. Dec 18, 2011

NOTE: When climbing Gabes do not be be drawn off route by the chains hanging for the two routes left of Gabriel's Watch; climb the blunt arete to the top, ending at two hangers. Rap "God Knows" to get off. Nov 7, 2012
