Description

Pitch one:
5.5
Start on the left side of the ramp and climb through easy and fun terrain. Get on the big ledge and then build an anchor at the end of the ledge. Lots of options for an anchor (we used 1 of each 2.5", 3" and 4" cam)

Pitch two:
5.9+
Leave the anchor and continue walking to the right. Join a good crack and pull up to another ledge (the bottom of the gorilla head). Then find the wide crack with a good 2"-2.5" crack in the back. Pull over this crux section and climb up and right to a bolted anchor.

Summit Pitch:
Climb left from the anchor and find a few good cam placements and pull over to the summit. Down climb off the summit and back to the anchor to rappel.

Location

It looks like a massive Gorilla head.

Protection

Standard desert rack up to 6". Lots of runners to help with rope drag. One 70m rope will get you to the ground.
