Low on the Lambada.


Cross the river and head left for about 30 yards after you hit the wall. There is a block sticking out at ground level at the base of the cliff which is where the climb starts. The route is 10-15 feet left of the block following a gray streak to the roof.


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor just under the roof.

I put this route up with John Bissel in the fall or 1994. It's original name is Gook-a-nook. It had the distinction of being the first 5.8 in RMP at the time. Bill Gibson

All lead bolts and anchor bolts were replaced recently with hardware from the ASCA. Several bolts were moved to make this a much better lead. Enjoy!

The name of this route is GOOK-A-NOOK. Look at the new guide book for criminy sakes, sheesh.

Guidebook says 7 bolts, but there are 8 or 9. Guidebook also says that this is 4 meters shorter than Brenna, the route 10 feet to the right, which is clearly wrong. Gook-a-nook is about 1 meter longer than Brenna.

Really slippery, you can tell it's been climbed a lot.... Makes the 5.8 rating a little spicy when the feet feel like an oil slick.
