Description 

Farthest left climb of this region to date. Start on relatively poor rock with easy climbing using gear and two bolts before the roof. One bolt protects the roof move while another gets you to a gear protected crux to easier ground. Above the steep lower section access the right leaning face and continue on the oddly aligned formation to the standard anchors. Finding planetary alignment is a must for this climb!

Location 

Farthest left (climber's) of the main Heaven's Gate area. Down a "level" from the perched glen that is a nice staging area and to the north.

Protection 

4 bolts, small-medium cams.

Wow, this climb packs a punch. There is enough pro to keep you from taking a bad fall, but it's definitely not a giveaway. The upper half of the climb is significantly easier on unusual leaning features. Super fun route.
