Galloping Gal--crux. Nate Erickson. 5/31/11.
A fun route up very good varnished rock. The crux comes in the vicinity of the third or fourth bolt. The easiest sequence wasn't initially obvious to me; using it might require some wingspan but there are several ways of doing the crux. The route stays interesting all the way to the top.
This route can be found by first identifying the route Running Man. Go around the corner to the right a few feet and you'll see a dihedral with a wide crack/chimney in it. This route is just to the left of that wide crack. It's best to belay from a flat platform about 15 feet up that's an easy scramble to access; leading the route and lowering takes most of a 60m rope from that spot.
10 bolts to a two-bolt rappel anchor.

good route, very engaging. be mindful of the semi-fragile rock up high. this route could probably use some new bolts.
