Description:

Start on a nice ledge twenty feet above the trail at a shallow dihedral with white rock right on the right edge of the Wine Couloir wall. climb straight up and through some overhangs after stepping right, belay on a nice ledge above or continue after moving left and then up and slightly right to the trees. Rap with two ropes from a tree with slings. One of the most popular routes on Minsi.

3 out of 5 stars Oh joy

My first climbing experience at the Gap. Awesome view but very dirty routes with loose rock. Be careful of where you step walking up to the cliff.

5 out of 5 stars Suprise

Followed GreenMonkee. Awesome climb. I like this a little better than Triumvirate - a bit harder, and cleaner rock. Fabulous view and exposure.

4 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised

Nice rock--there seems to be a perfect little foothold spaced perfectly along each section of pitch one. Good gear in all the spots you need it--this is my favorite so far at the Gap.
