The Right Arrow. The obvious dihedral and splitte...


The Right Arrow is home to the best rock at Gilman, the best routes and Gilman, and the longest singlepitch routes at Gilman. If you have time for only one crag, this is the one to visit. The Crag offers a nice flat cliff base area, somewhat separated from the tourists, and is a great place to spend the day. All of the routes on this wall have a similar character, with very technical and thin starts, to some sort of roof, finishing up long, relatively moderate slabs.

Routes here appear a bit intimidating due to the blank nature of the lower third of the cliff. Most of the route cruxes are in the first several bolts, so don't be put off if you have trouble getting started. Stick clip strongly recommended for this cliff.

Getting There 

Ther Right Arrow is the towering steep slab immediately across the river from the pullout.

Hostile Takeover 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : Right Arrow
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 ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
