Description

Gator Pond starts with some stout slab climbing and then goes up steep jugs, slopers, pockets, and crimps ending fighting over a bulge to the anchors of Putt Putt.

It's a little bit of a squeeze job, but I really enjoy the climbing on this route.

Poop notes: after the 2nd bolt there is a poop den. I cleaned a lot off; however, it can be totally avoided with choosing holds correctly.

Location

This is just right of Three Roofs aka Gopher Hole, follow the black hangars/bolts.

Protection

5 bolts (you need 5 quickdraws) to quick clips. This shares anchors with Putt Putt.

Looks good, can't wait to get on. What, ya didn't wanna spent the extra $150 on fixed draws? Shucks, now we gotta carry a bunch of heavy gear up that heinous approach ;)

Edit: cool route. Took me a few tries, but I worked it down to .12a, and thanks for the equipage. Nov 9, 2015

We'll see if people like it, I'll invest in some permas in it if others enjoy, haven't heard much of anyone getting on it yet, though. Nov 9, 2015
I thought the route was really good!! Not too much of a squeeze job until the very end. Felt stout, but climbing is hard when you can't follow all the white marks. Thanks for bolting it. Nov 9, 2015

Best .12a at G Wall! Maybe it's because the the holds actually have texture? Dec 8, 2015
