Franziska arm wrestles with Gumby's easy mid slab

Description 

Walk uphill behind HC Tower to the next tower up and right and approach the downhill and longest side.

Pitch #1: Climb massive cobbles up the broad spine of the Gumby and surmount the crux at its neck to the top of the formation and a three-bolt belay. 5.9, 25m.

Beware of remaining loose cobbles until more traffic cleans it up a bit more. Generally solid rock


Location 

The first "bigger" free standing tower as you enter the canyon. This route ascends the lower angle and slab on the south side.

Protection 

Drilled on lead, a few glue-in bolts along with other 3/8" Hilti Wedge and 1/2" Hilti Sleeve bolts were placed.

Helmets recommended for belayer.
