Gabriel on Ant Jemima, above the first crux or wha...


Fun moves on excellent rock. Route starts up one of two low angle cracks. We went up the right one at 5.6 or whatever. Small ledge, then crack continues and widens with bad feet left. This is the first crux. I jam my body into the crack and hump my way up to a handjam at the end of the wide section inside the crack, then out onto the left face. Up and up. Second crux is dealing with loose rocks on a short vertical section before reaching the big tree. Rapp off this tree.


This route is a few minutes walk and scramble south/left of the Swayze Express, and right/north of the big roof.


Single rack of cams from .4-3.
First piece (for me) was a chockstone in the wide crack. Bring a double length sling for this. Might want to clip another sling to that as well. Might be loose by then so whatevsssss.
