BETA PHOTO: Major Distraction at Gateway Rock


Cruise up fourth class slab action past two bolts to a small ledge and the third bolt. While the third bolt may seem too low to do any good, it's a good idea to clip it to keep the rope out of your crotch if you come off above it. (Not speaking from experience, really!)

The climbing above is significantly steeper and trickier generally using the left edge of the headwall near the top. You can pop left to a great ledge just below the anchors for a snooze and then work through the final short crack to the anchor.

8 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with chain.
