  • Description 

    A short boulder with two burly lines on it. The trail runs right through the landing zone, so climbing this on crowded weekends is inadvisable.

    Getting There 

    If approaching from Sunset, the Gatekeeper is just after the Guardian boulder on the left side of the trail. If approaching from the south, the Gatekeeper is after the Blackout boulder on the right.

    Climb up the right arete of the Gatekeeper boulder. Squat start with left hand on a half-pad crimp on the main face, and right hand in a slopey pocket around the arete. Throw the left hand straight up to the lip and fight the barn door. Traverse along the lip to an easier topout. There is a decent undercling pinch just above the left start hold that could be used as an intermediate, though it sits at a somewhat awkward angle....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oklahoma
