Gorilla Finishing School.

Description 

The rightmost and steepest of three routes at the Gallery, climb a face to a hueco under the 2.5' horizontal roof and reach for the first bolt. Power through the roof to thin moves then good holds above. Finish left on the same anchor as the other routes. Option: Sling the third bolt and run it out up the exposed hollow tower above [takes thin cams] then step left to the anchor.

Location 

Gain the talus ridge just above Kola. Cross west on a faint trail and walk around the corner past a buttress and a two bolt slab route (name?) to the recently developed "Far Side Gallery" where there are three short but steep bolted routes that share an anchor.

Protection 

3 bolts, to shared anchor.
