The first bolted route right of the large chimney near the middle of the main wall. Fun face climbing with a steep finish on jugs. Using the arete on the left keeps the climb at 5.8. More challenging is not using the arete and making the route 5.9ish.
Listed as route #8 on the Gallows Edge Main Wall photo topo.
4 bolts to a two bolt anchor with carabiners. For the safety and convenience of everyone, please leave the carabiners in place and enjoy using them!

Nice climb. The roof will get a beginner's attention! It's possible to go around it to the left, but why would you rob yourself like that? =)

My favorite route at Gallows. Go straight up at the top. It's well-protected and super fun.
