BETA PHOTO: West Face of South Gunsight 5.9


Climbed by Cliff Leight and partner in the early 1990s. This is the only route on the face.


Begin in the chimney at the left side of the face. Up the chimney for one pitch, then traverse right onto the face. Up into the large Right-Facing dihedral high on the route, then finish up the face to the left.


Standard rack to 3"
