Almost Gifted- V7. The original topout is not qui...

Description 

I almost gifted this one to a stronger friend because I thought it was a little too hard to for me. Not sure if it was slightly damp the first day I tried it but when I returned, the moves felt much easier.

Sit start with you left hand on an obvious edge/pinch, and your right hand on the top of the rail. Make a really cool move to a square-cut sloper, and ride the blocky rail up and left to a moderately difficult topout.

Might be able to start a little further right on the rail. You could also do a right finish that doesn't follow the rail all the way. Perfect rock, great moves, skin friendly holds, and a nice landing combine to make a masterpiece that I am glad I didn't give away.

Location 

Hike about two minutes down the trail and just before the second bridge(the longer one) take a right heading uphill in a steep gully. Follow the bank of the river right and you will see a rock cove with Almost gifted facing uphill.

Protection 

Could do with a single pad but recommend two pads.
