The Gauntlet is a left to right traverse across the Magnum Block that finishes with a nice roof that looms above the "V" shaped gap next door to the east. Start at some very small crimps at the west end of the south face, traverse past the triangular bucket hold, out to the make my day hold, and down to a recessed flat edge at the bottom of the east face. Reach up and establish both hands on a two-digit ledge 18" up the east face, and squat onto the bottom foot hold. Mantle high enough to place a right palm on the roof above, step up a left foot, and finish with the roof to the right. A block used to sit under the east face, but it was removed by an unknown party. Thank You, as it presented major ankle damage issues....
