Crank Start 5.11c - follows the yellow X's
An overhanging, powerful, and sequential face climb. This route rises from the wreckage of rusted vehicles in the gully below Gibraltar rock's main south face.
A reachy and bouldery start (crux?) leads to the first of four bolts. A stick-clip is advised, or maybe just a really good spotter to keep you from tumbling down the hillside if you blow it. Sustained, pumpy climbing with big moves between good holds leads to the anchor.
Due to the location of the anchor, I don't think this route is easily top-roped.
4 bolts (3/8") to 2 bolt anchor.

A few of the critical holds on this route appear to be reinforced with epoxy. Good climb regardless

Crank This use to be a better variation of this route. After bolt three (I recall) traverse right for a few more bolts. Longer and more sustained and well worth doing once you've walked down there.
