Description 

Just right of Goodro's Wall is a bolted face. (1 bolt) climb this. The climb ends at the horizontal finger ledge, but continuing up Generation Gap would be the thing to do. This route is insane. Nothing solid on it. My partner was able to redpoint it, I just got on it and failed. Maybe next year!!


Protection 

1 draw for the route, I don't recommend utilizing the RURP that is dying below the bolt.

This is also a fine thin clean aid climb, if that's your thing. Protect the start!

Not a one bolt route. FA party finished up Generation Gap. Much more fun.
