Description 

The Gap is listed in Sven's guidebook as starting in "The Gap" between the south wall of T Tower and a blank face. I started the route on "No Way Down" and belayed my partner to the ledge to do the rest of the route. The 5.8 version goes up a layback crack then right to the corner, a 5.9 version goes straight up (not recommended).


Location 

Climb the first half of "No Way Down" and exit right to a ledge. Find the thin crack and solo to the horizontal.


Protection 

SKETCHY! I brought up a crash pad for the first part and got two ok cams in a horizontal for some weird moves up and right. Belay standing on a small ledge on the corner.
