D.A. does great, hard climb IMO!

Description 

Climb the arête located on the far right of the north-facing face and buttress of Heaven’s Gate, lower than the corridor. Prominent chimney is to the left of this arête and line of bolts should be obvious. Begin on poor rock, thin holds and delicate-tricky moves through the first 3 bolts. Clip the fourth and get ready for prolonged bulging crux where footwork is key. Standard anchors with biners for lowering or top-roping. Note that we have climbed the chimney in various ways to get to these anchors and it offers quality rock and fun chimney practice. Thin protection in the chimney.

Location 

As you enter the main "level" of Heaven's Gate this arête is just to your right.

Protection 

6 bolts
