The name is a pun inspired by a favorite rapper, The Gift of Gab. Also it's named so that folks know it's necessary to place some gear on this pitch; many climbers have got into trouble thinking a route is a sport route at Hartmans when it's actually a mixed route.

Starting on a ramp, to the right of "Watching in Silence", it climbs overhanging, then vertical terrain on thin edges, past five bolts into a small crack, which requires small stoppers and small cams (Aliens work well).


Draws, thin stoppers, small cams.
