2nd pitch biz; Fear Machine FA

Description 

To date the most core of the gap routes. Good rock and stimulating & creative climbing make this an extremely rewarding route. Falling on this route as with all gap routes is definately not in your best interest. Completeing any of these routes is extremely rewarding but this one is super rewarding.


Location 

The route begins at the obvious steep gash in the center of the north face of the gap. Two to three steep pitches reveals an amazing belay ledge slightly to the right underneath an overhanging jam crack. To decend all routes, but glisade down the large recess to the climbers right of the routes. This brings you right to the road! Very nice.

Standard alpine rack of nuts, cams, & selection of pins
