Mark Stroeve leading Gorilla.
Located approx. 80 feet right of IHC, this route is a slightly left-leaning splitter on the right wall of a dihedral. It intersectes the corner crack about 30 feet from the bolt anchors. It starts as tight hands, negotiates two awesome offwidth pods, pulls through some sustained wide hands, and meets the dihedral, which is good to tight hands. A steller climb that goes on and on, you never want it to stop.
A full 30 metre pitch. Bring 3-5 each 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 Friends, and 2 4 Friends.
Colt cruising Gorilla Crack.

If you bury a leg in one of the pods, you can get a great no-hands rest (you won't be pumped at this point, but it's a great pose.) Slightly awkward down low through the wider stuff... Nice route. I think I used a #4 camalot.

Not too bad if you have big mitts.

how the heck does this not get 4 stars! great route and a nice warmup. the pods may be a little tricky but the route offers plenty of rest steps.
