Begin 40' right of The Locksmith Dihedral behind a prominent 200' pillar. Ascend the clean, excellent crack system behind the pillar for 6 steep aid pitches to the top. There is a small bivy ledge (1 lying down) on top of pitch 4. We only placed 6 pins on this otherwise clean route, of which we highly recommend. F.A. Dave Jones, Brian Smoot & Chris Owens. Oct. 2006

4 out of 5 stars Gatekeeper Crack Solo

This route has not seen much traffic. It took 2 trips to lug all my stuff to the base. Probably the best part of this route is that no one is around, just some goats in the valley. I didn't use a hammer, but I didn't do the last 2 pitches either, I had my hands full as it was. On pitch 4 I was able to avoid using hooks with some trickery, the topout was tough on p4. Bring extra .75 camalots at least 3 if not 4! I had 2!!! Great route, good exposure, p2 is a bit creepy and p4 is hard, lots of C2 bring many small wires and a couple of sliders. Spent the night on top of p2 & p4 You can watch a video I made here:
