indistinct line behind and above huge boulder that divides the lower and upper wall of Pearly Gates. The original start comes in from the right side of the boulder, or you can climb a wide 5.6 crack up the middle of the boulder. There is a bolt to make the way on the wall above the boulder.The bolt also protects the 5.8 crux.
Pitch 1) 1 bolt, some gear. 70' to bolted anchor
Pitch 2 ) 4 bolts, some gear, 70' to bolted anchor.


next thing right of Angelic Curse.


5 bolts, light rack to 2".

The second pitch is great, edgy face with four or five bolts, but it's not 5.8. More like 10a or b, IMHO. Excellent though. Very fun and sustained. I rated this climb "Great" because of the second pitch. First pitch is only "OK."
