BETA PHOTO: Guchi and surrounding routes, Pillar of Pummel and...

Description 

The left half of Mid-Town is sheltered by a large roof 60 feet up the cliff. On the far right end of this roof are a pair of short, difficult routes, Guchi on the left, and Moce on the right.

Guchi features a dynamic start with long moves to a good rest, followed by sequential, pumpy crimping up and left to another good rest, and one final 12- crimping section up and right to chains below a smaller roof.

This route is harder than it looks. Its pretty easy to read the beta from the ground, and so, seems easily on-sight-able, yet many a strong man has tried and failed.

Location 

13th route right of Cliff Nazi, or immediately right of Pillar of Pummel.

Protection 

Bolts. Stick clip the first bolt.

Great route on good quality rock, may require a good brushing, so if you want to OS have someone else brush it down first. I found the clip at the 3rd bolt to be quite hard, w/o any options to get around it. Also the final crux felt as hard and insecure as any of the other hard moves.
