Bruce Vollmer leading Gomers.

Description 

Gomers starts in front of a large pine tree, between two small conifers. Start up the slab, staying to the right of the large bush. There’s a cruxy section past the second bolt, but after the first clip, the route is fairly sustained climbing on thin features. The two arching overlaps above offer some very interesting movement and the crux is to be found between the two. These unique features set Gomers apart from the other routes on the Whale. This is a true classic for the area.


Location 

Gomers in Blue Shirts is about 40’ to the right of First Mate.


Protection 

7 bolts, bolt anchor.
