Fun route for small kids. We hiked down the Gap to find it. Can be found from the river bottom by spotting two apparent belay bolts & a piton five feet left of the start of route. If accessing from above the rim, this route is about 20' West of a wood post (near the rim) at the center parking spot on the North side of Gap. Two good TR bolts just below rim, but no chains.

I just trad lead this today with a # .75, #1 and a medium stopper. Super easy trad lead. Good for beginners.
There is another trad leadable crack just to the left of this route that is slightly harder, 5.4 maybe, that takes small to medium nuts and then is run out to the chains on super easy terrain. We called it Chinese Gaunchos.
Both routes have 2 chain anchors that were bomber.

things tend to feel a little easier after you've worked out the beta.

This route now has two sets of bolts with chains at the top. Those to climber's right offer less rope drag. Easily accessible and a great route for new climbers and kids. There is enough variation even for more advanced climbing if you take the over-hanging section at the bottom head on.

Fun short route. The other anchors are for the 5.4 to the left.

Perfect for kids. Park at the top, set up toprope under the bulge, and either rapell or amble down just east of this route.
