Now there is a diagonal bolt line (two or three bolts) starting 10-15 feet to the left and joining this route about 20-25 feet up.
The first 15 feet of this route is much harder than most of the upper two-thirds. The easy sections of the upper section are fun, then there's a more strenuous couple of moves just before the top.
Top-Rope: We did this route (and the left start variation) on top-rope from the Catwalk anchor. One of our climbers was not strong enough for the starting sequences, so after climbing Catwalk we lowered him about two-thirds of the way down this Gape Index route, so he was able to enjoy the easier fun parts.
Normally the upper part of this route goes in the dihedral just right of the arete, but on Top-Rope could finish directly on the arete.
