Start just below a somewhat large broken flake/hole and work your way up to the first bolt. Make a few intermediate moves to reach the second bolt. From here (the crux), rocker up and latch onto the "rail" above on the thin patina plate. Continue to work up, moving slighty right then back left to reach bigger holds. Clip the 3rd and final bolt...you're home free!


- (3) bolts
- Anchors bolts equipped with rings


This fine addition to Paul's Paradise is located on the north facing end, 10 feet left of the bolted route called 'Unknown' (5.9). Additionally, it can be identified by five bullet holes near the first bolt.

5.9 crux was solid for the grade. great climb! May 21, 2014
I'm curious if anyone else has comments on it?

I need to get back out this way soon. Jan 19, 2015

Went back a few weeks ago and did all of the routes on the north side of Paul's, including the route to the right of Gun Rail (which, in the Bishop guidebook, is 5.9). Gun Rail is more sustained than the route to the right (which has an opening move that might check in at soft 5.9). I'd consider bumping Gun Rail's rating to 5.9+/.10a. Mar 26, 2015
Okay, if I understand this area correctly, I see three routes, left to right: "Gun Rail," "North Face," and "Unknown." I'd rate these 10a, 5.8, 5.9. All worth doing, btw. Apr 23, 2015

Well, to update, currently from left to right: "Annie Get Your Gun" (5.7+), "Guns & Roses" (5.8), "Top Gun" (5.10a), "Gun Rail" (5.9), "North Face" (5.8), and "Unknown" (5.9), and "Haf & Haf" (5.7). Aug 18, 2015

Dave and Rob - Brad and I led this over the weekend (3-26-16) and Kat followed it. We all agreed that the crux was 10a and some of the hand holds are really small and sharp!
I really liked the route. It made me pause for quite a while figuring it out. Getting to the first bolt is also spicy - it looks just a bit higher than bolt 1 on the North Face - nice addition to the wall. Mar 29, 2016

Tricky and sharp if you read the line wrong. Not too bad if you hit it with a good sequence. Apr 16, 2017
