Start on underclings/sidepulls and make your way up good holds to a fun throw for the top.

You can also do this climb from a sitstart.


Located just to the right of the Green Seam wall. Problem ascends the face that has a tree growing around it.


Very good landing.

I believe Slippery Paul and Ed named this route Gay Gigolo when it was first put up. This sandstone area is a great change of pace from the quartzite crimps.

I third Terry's claim, and further when I did the Gay Gigolo I remember it being called V3. Has it gotten easier or were my appendages in the wrong orifices?

Thanks for the correction. It could be harder, especially if you are shorter. All I know is that it is really quite fun to pull on holds with friction at the lake.
