Powerful, pumpy and a wee bit technical. An exciting leftwards traverse from the second bolt of Gateway takes you into a beautiful shield of rock. Two longer draws on the first two bolts will minimize drag. Some small crimps and a cryptic crossover will get you to the top of this route. A little power endurance won't hurt either.
6 bolts to a ring anchor.
This is the left most route on the Gateway Buttress, the first piece of rock you will encounter when hiking up from the parking lot. Clip the first two bolts on Gateway and then head left and up a faint dihedral.
