This is a great route that takes you all the way to the top of the spire. The bottom of the route is engaging with interesting gear. The crux offers steep climbing on big holds, passing a precarious flake. After the crux the climbing backs off considerably. One rope will get you down with multiple raps stopping at the Gambler's anchors.


The route is the obvious crack system to the right of the bolts on The Gambler.
