The Gazelle having fun on Downtown Man (5.7)

Description 

Classic slab and face climbing on smooth rock with edges and smears.

Start just below a big bush, just left of Uptown Funk. Climb the easy slab to a bolt, then head across a slab up and right to where the wall steepens a bit and the second bolt (5.7). Climb up past 3 more bolts to a large triangular flake (not quite sure what keeps that in place, but I've climbed over it. YMMV!) Pass the flake and continue up the face past 3 more bolts to the prominent diagonal roof/lip/corner. Follow the corner up and left to a bush. Surmount the roof there (huge holds) and climb past thin cracks to a short face. Climb that face (awesome edges) past one more bolt to the anchor (rap rings). 2 raps with a single 70m rope (knot ends!) or walk off to climber's right (sht. section of 3rd class).

Note: it is possible to break this climb into two pitches by putting in an intermediate stop at the mid-way anchor at the triangular flake.

Location 

This is the route immediately left of Uptown Funk (the arete). It is possible to walk off to climber's right from the top (sht. section of 3rd class) or do 2 rappels with a single 70m rope (knot ends!)

Protection 

9 bolts, small rack with small to medium nuts/cams; 70m rope.
