Short By a Foot 10c at the Gallery.


Climb edges and crimpers on a highly featured face to a long move and then a mantle to a ledge


Take the trail starting at the top of the Sore Heel hill to access the left side of the Gallery to reach this wall. Start 10 feet right of Dain Bramage.


5 bolts + anchors.

Mantling the ledge was tough - it's VERY sandy up there. It may be easier to veer right to top out. Left side would be an option is it wasn't so sandy - there just doesn't seem to be anywhere you can put your hands that will stick.

I think 10c a tad stiff, given the decent pump you get and the mantling surprise at the top...
