THE WHITNEY GILMAN RIDGE ON CANNON CLIFF
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The third pitch of The Whitney Gilman Ridge. The "pipe pitch" as it is called. Named after an actual pipe that was wedged into the rock for a reason unknown to me. The exposure as you step out at the pipe of the Black Dike Route is awesome. Having climbed on a dinosaur back for hundreds of feet with little exposure the move to the pipe lets you know how high you are. The climb is 5.7 with a great 5.9 variation on the last pitch.
