Left of Gurkha is this new (since the new guidebook) route. I know the name only because I found the plaque. I know no other information. Look for twin finger cracks in a corner off of a ledge (right where the lowest ten feet of the wall go to choss) that give way to another set of twin cracks, this time wide hands. The left most crack goes straight to the anchors, the right one arches right and away from the anchors. 80 feet? 5.10?

3 out of 5 stars Totally misjudged size. Anchor could use chains.

Had to come back down and get bigger/ different gear. Actually quite fun once you get through the choss at the beginning.

Beta Warning!!!!
- there are three cracks you climb: Right: ~.75 - #1 C4. Middle: Old #4 Camalot - #4 C4 too small, #5 C4 too big. Left: hand sizes.

Anchor: Currently has my hubby's draws on the hangers. Could definitely use a quick link on one bolt and a length of chain on the other.
