lovely route! the lefthand holds weren't the greatest but they served as great balance holds. crux near the summit told a couple moments to figure out the footwork, but hand jams were solid while i pulled through. another super garden climb!
Fun day out in the Garden with Jamie. Started with Montezuma's north ridge then headed over to climb the windows route on the Three Graces. Then we walked over and climbed the chossy and intimidating south ridge of Pigeon Rock and then climbed the south ridge of the White Spire. After a quick water break we headed back out and scrambled to the top of South Gateway via the south ridge and then back over and up tourist gully to the summit of North Gateway. Lots of folks out today.
Great fun. A crowd gathered to watch us climb, made me feel kind-of weird.
Tourists below applauded my summit... made me laugh!
An easy single pitch climb in a great setting.
This is a quick, easy climb with solid holds throughout. I thought the crux was the first 10 feet off the ground. You'll be the center of attention with the tourists on this climb. A nice intro to the Garden climb.
