BETA PHOTO: Looking up the Gorilla in Manilla.


Jam, chimney, and worm your way up the straight-in wide crack. Pass a tough bulge on good fists, then inch your way up a strenuous, flared squeeze chimney (crux) to the belay ledge.

This is an fun, clean route with great jams down low and a bit of well-protected burliness up high.


Gorilla In Manilla is approximately 80 feet left (north) of Obe Won Canobe. Look for the wide splitter with a bulge 45' up, and chains at the top and just left.

Rappel with a single 60m.


#0.4 to #4 Camalots, 2 - #3s.

2 bolts with chains at belay.

Gnarly ass route! The crux is well-protected and probably easier for smaller people.
