Gonzo just below the belay ledge tree
Named after a legendary chief of the Lenni Lenape. This is a classic trad route at the Gap. The crux is the overhang above the mid-route belay ledge. Bomber hold right over the lips center.
Pitch 1: Take a direct line up and slightly left to the cedar belay tree at mid-height, passing a small ceiling at 25' and a bulge at 35', followed by a slab.
Pitch 2: From the belay, step up slightly right, clear the ceiling, then move up to the big, flat ceiling near the top. Clear the ceiling on the right end at a crack. Move right to 'Trimuverate's' cedar tree.
Start 6' right of the oak tree below 'shadow line'.
2 sets of nuts, small, medium and some 3"cams for the belay ledge. Try not to use the slings around the tree by the belay ledge or the lost arrow piton stuck in the wall.

A great route! Good clean rock. We started as per Triumverate, but went left before the notch and pulled up onto a slabby face. We followed that face up to the roof, which exits on the right on buckets, and all the way to the bolts.

Easy to lead this in one pitch if you head straight up on P2 and avoid the corner. Gear is PG, bring a couple pink and red tricams.
