Excellent gear route just left of the Coliseum Start in the dihedral(for full value and the High Plains Drifter variation) pull out of the dihedral and wander up through little roofs to you gain another dihedral. Typical Summersville Lake chickenheads guard the anchor.


Gear is found all over the place. Be careful of rope drag.
