BETA PHOTO: Da Gyps Route starts at the small roof in the lowe...

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


Da Gyps Route requires Gypsy Beta skills. Start with surmounting a low roof goes up through four bolts to anchor of Citadel Crack.


This is to the right of Citadel Crack.


You will need some gear for the start. Also, if runout 5.9 is scary for you bring some finger-sized widgets for the middle.

Great climb from a low roof to stemming up high. Felt more in the 11 range to me hard start.

Really good route. Felt like 5.11 to me. I couldn't find a nice way to do the start... just ended up pulling really hard.

I can easily say that this is spicy, hard 5.11. I had a point 1 between bolts 1&2 and a point 2 between bolts 2&3. The moves between bolts are harder than 5.9.
