4 out of 5 stars cryptic fun

1st time on this route. A bit vegetated with some loose rock like most Gap climbs but a lot of fun. When the corner got too veggy, we moved a few feet over to the face, which was enjoyable. The chimney was pretty cool and made more thrilling with a bush at the top and some loose blocks.
