High on the upper slab of Hostile Takeover.

Description 

This is the premier route at Gilman. With perfect stone, technical, engaging moves, and a stunning, natural line that goes on forever, this one has it all. Begin on the blank-looking slab just right of the Old Punks on Crack dihedral. Shoot straight up the smooth slab past 3 bolts of heinous, technical face climbing to a ramp-like pod that offers a brief rest. Move up to the lip of the bulge with the help of some nice jugs. An intense rock-over crux surmounts the lip of the bulge, where endless 5.10 face moves await. Snake back and forth up the long wall staying right of the splitter crack.


Location 

On the right end of the Right Arrow, beginning two feet right of the the obvious right-facing dihedral at the base of the wall.


Protection 

Bolts.

To keep the crux the lower bulge and the upper section only 5.10 alot of wandering is required on the upper face. I remember a traverse left between the last bolt and anchors. Going direct made the finish the crux.
