Right Eliminator problems.


This ultra classic may be my favorite problem ever. Same start as standard R. Elim. but after reaching the left layaway, climb on up the prow. Brilliant moves, sweet position, and it always makes me grin from ear to ear.


Pad is for happy feet. Might need to move after initial moves to protect different arete topout.

First ascent of this route was by Steve Mammen. We were hanging around the base of this in the late 70's, arguing about whether a cheat stone was really a cheat since the ground had eroded about 2' since the original Gill ascent, when Steve and I saw the line (duh!) at the same time. Steve sent the route the obvious way (From the layback, grab the pinch with your right hand then cross your left over the tthe top pinch), then I did the "Chuck" version (From the right hand pinch, set up and "chuck" your right hand up to the top pinch to finish.).

Definately one of the nicest lines on the Eliminator and, surprisingly, not too hard.

Super Cool route. My favorite!!! If your short you may need to fold up a crash pad and do a jump start to the layback. This problem is so freaken awsome!!!!!!!!!!

Though there is no disputing that this problem is an ultimate classic. I think that for shorter kids/guys/girls that it makes it harder. This is the longest I have ever worked a v4 so I think it is more like v5. But it has been climbed many a time so I guess it is just one of those problems that seems harder than it is!! Super classic though!

Erosion has definitely made the start more difficult over the years. I now have to stand on top of 3 crashpads to allow my meager 5'7" stature to start the route without jumping. However, the level of fun on this route does make up for this modest inconvenience.

This is a fun one, I wouldn't call it a route though, it's only 4 or 5 moves. This actually involves some technical moves rather than a bunch of dynos which makes it one of my favorites to the area. Mainly because my fat ass sucks at dynos

So...Gill or Mammen FA? Read that first comment, it says Mammen and Gill did it first.

The Gill ascent Malcolm is speaking of is of Right Eliminator, not Right Eliminator Prow.
