Start with a boulder problem to HUGE plates. Pull over an interesting flake feature to cool door knob like holds.


Next route left of Brief History of Climbing.

Amazing finishing dyno to the chains on this one! Super fun move Oct 25, 2015
This route is fantastic. There was a nice slab section, a nice overhang section, a cool vertical flake, and at the top there were some plates spread out enough for a dyno. The whole thing looks similar to Brief History of Climb and is totally worth trying if you're stuck waiting for 27 years of climbing or BHoC (typical). Oct 30, 2015

Consensus of .11a by a wide margin at redriverclimbing.com (Ray's site). Seems like last move is harder for shorties like us. Will try this route the next time I find myself at The Gallery. Oct 30, 2015

Climbs like 3 individual boulder problems all separated by no-hands rests. The last bit up the sidepulls and plate jugs is a blast! Exciting finish Nov 5, 2015
The last "dyno" move can be done static by a 5'1" climber Dec 17, 2015
Much more interesting than its neighbor. Was there with 3 other groups (10 total climbers) and 10 onsited the climb, 0 did a dyno. Definitely stick clip the first bolt. Sep 7, 2016

I'd give it 11a for the move up top and since its not sustained 10 climbing. The middle section makes the route feel a lot easier, but there are some decently tough moves in the beginning and at the end. Not sure how others skip the dyno, but I went right to a nice side pull/undercling and up to the last big flake. Really fun route! Apr 10, 2017

Definitely not a sustained climb. 5'2" minus 1 ape - you can do the final move to the first set of chains static. But it's fun to dyno to such a bomber hold! Fun route! Oct 20, 2017
Hold broke for those of you finding it harder than 5.10. Posted a photo Oct 23, 2017

Not particularly good at dynos, but the last move to the anchors felt pretty hard for 10d! Supposedly there used to be a big plate there a bit lower down, seemed at least 11a to me now. May 21, 2018

Super fun! The bottom isn't as hard as it looks, but isn't easy either. Definitely use a stick clip on this one.

The reward of pushing through the bottom is a jug haul and a fairly easy onsite if you manage to stick the last move. I did it statically and fell on the first attempt. The dyno was easier.

Definitely don't be shy about getting on this. It stays free while the 12 person parties line up for "Brief History" right next door. I didn't try the dyno but wish I had. I think it would have been easier than going for it statically which lead to me blowing it on the first try.

It's a stretch to call this "11a". It's not much harder than Brief History and it's a stretch to call that one "10b". Sep 14, 2018
