Timmy D. on the showstopper final dyno of Vanishin...


This is a new iteration of Summer Teeth, Rob Frost's burly roof extension to Toothless Grin, climbed in the mid 2000s.

Rather then climb Toothless Grin (12a), Pointy Teeth starts via the powerful and technical Vanishing Point (12d) to reach a kneebar rest at the anchors under the roof. Clip a bolt in the roof, then swing into a wild sequence of kneebars and pinches to reach the anchor just over the lip.

This line deserves to see some repeats and may well become a cult classic. Featuring gonzo slab dynos and inverted full body shenanigans, it's a good test of one's all around climbing skills.


Toothless Grin area, just uphill past the roofs on the right side of the main Eyeless in Gaza area.


10 bolts.
