Sin Gaz is a great recent (2011) addition to the Frisky Cliff.

Begin with the same funky dihedral start of Sinopia. Three bolts of corner climbing deposit you on a huge ledge. After getting it all back, jump right into the routes crux - an overhanging dihedral/face. Either get fierce with the crimps near the vertical seam on the right or throw big to the perfectly water-sculpted hueco.

Sin Gaz heads right from the hueco (Sinopia goes left) into a brilliant layback sequence ending at the lightbulb sloper jug. From there, one more techy sequence separates you from the finishing jugs and anchor.

This is an excellent, featured, overhung granite route and will appeal to those looking for a change of pace from the Boulder Canyon tech-nasty slabs and smear intensive faces. And at 8,500 feet, it's a great summer spot for those looking to escape the heat (shade until approximately 2pm in the summer).


This is the third route from the left and shares its start with Sinopia. Sin Gaz heads right after the 5th bolt (Sinopia heads left).


8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I just sent this route and had an absolute blast doing so. It was nice to return to the bottom crux of Sinopia and do a new finish to it. I put a long draw on the first independent bolt on the route, slapped it, clipped it, and continued on. Highly recommended! I swear this route felt just as hard as Sinopia :) Jul 19, 2015
It should be noted that the direct start has the working title of Con Gaz. The top crux is a little tricky. Jul 16, 2013
