Pete finishing off the Gap

Description 

Somewhat right facing, short route on slabby face through the first three bolts. The crux is the demanding movement on the overhanging second block - from the third (and final) bolt to the anchor...utilizing tiny crimps on the face or a dirty left-sided arete. A fall near the anchor can result in decking on the ledge half way up the route, proceed carefully.

Location 

Another 50 feet past Spring Breezes. Look for a large downed tree parallel to the cliff. The Gap is the first bolt line near the tree.

Protection 

3 quickdraws. Vertically bolted anchor, single quick link for rappel, not ideal.
