Governor Stable requires membership or a paid pass. The Circuit Area is currnetly closed to all climbing while access to the area is negotiated. Please respect the closed / no tresspassing signs posted near the pyramid. The rest of GS proper remains open to members and daypass holders. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a thin face climb on tiny edges with long reaches on a hanging, steep face. Start in the center of the blank face crouched or sit if you can on a one hand edge. This is also the starting hold for Finish Line (V10). I do not think that the original problem started at this height, rather it started much higher at very thin edges at head or higher height. Either way, the new school way is to start lower. Reach to the thin edges described above, then pick your way up a super blank face with almost no footholds to the lip and mantel. This is the crux. This is old school problem, hard V5 or most likely even harder. Good luck. This thing hardly ever gets climbed. I have never seen anyone even attempt it. I have spent too much time trying to get from the tiny edges up high to the lip, and I have not come even close to topping it out.

Location 

The center of the steep, blank face on a boulder that is adjacent to the Cave that is accessed from the upstream (entrance to the Stables) entrance into the Cave. It faces into the Cave proper.

Protection 

A pad or two. There is a flat boulder for the landing.
