Gladdis on Die Young

Description 

Starting on a ramp 35 feet or so to the right of Gargoyle is a thin crack that leads to a face with one bolt.

In Bartlett's guide there is no mention of the bolt (retro?) crux was at the top of the crack with some bad fall opportunities before the bolt.


Protection 

I found nothing of use in the crack. Bring small rack for the anchor and a draw for the bolt.

Good route, crux was near the top of the crack a thin line for your right foot on the right after a solid left foot. We used a small under cling to stay on the line. We used the path on the right to hike around to the anchors, sporting to the one and only bolt would be extremely dangerous as there are many fall opportunities on the crack.
