Gargoyle, 5.10a

1st Pitch- 80m- 5.7/ As referenced in the approach beta, locate the tree and roof above. The route could meander up any number of lines via 5.7 face climbing with a variety of short corner features. The main consideration is to stay left of the large corner/chimney area. Keep in mind the second pitch ends dead center of the large yellowish roof above. Climb left of a small bulge towards the top and set up on a comfortable ledge about 20’ to the left. There is one fixed pin which I did not see until I passed it. I felt there were plenty of opportunities for pro despite the run out comments by the FAers.
