Description:

Past the Gash of Death some thirty yards or so past the broken slate like roofs. Route finding on a sport route? Somewhat. Route gains steep face then moves up through several tiered roofs. Name came from first on-sighter's broken slab that landed more than close to belayers legs. or perhaps it was in deference to the beginning of the First Gulf War?

3 out of 5 stars Fun, but a bit chossy

Start is heads up. Bait chossy before the final roof. Fun though.

3 out of 5 stars balance as well as pump

a few balancey face moves to a series of pumpy roofs - the holds are all there and are pretty big, but don't waste too much time up there

4 out of 5 stars Target Practice

Great View. Belay the second from above. Significant rope drag makes top-roping difficult.
