Description

Climb up the right arete of the Gatekeeper boulder. Squat start with left hand on a half-pad crimp on the main face, and right hand in a slopey pocket around the arete. Throw the left hand straight up to the lip and fight the barn door. Traverse along the lip to an easier topout.

There is a decent undercling pinch just above the left start hold that could be used as an intermediate, though it sits at a somewhat awkward angle.

Location

Roughly 15 feet south of the Guardian boulder.
