There are currently two closures in effect, both on North Gateway Rock. The first closures is for the Eastern Face (including the East ledges), which will include routes like Max's Mayhem, Snuggles/Fall Crack, etc. The second closure is for the Tower of Babel on the North end of Gateway Rock, and includes Anaconda, Ryan's Inferno, The Inferno, and Triple Exposure. The routes listed above are for reference, but may not represent all routes affected, and closures may be subject to change. We've provided a map of North gateway showing these closures.

This is the line that moves out the obvious set of slopers on the steepest part of the block. Super fun moves, always give myself blood blisters from slapping at the slick holds as hard as I can. There's a vid of a guy sending this somewhere on youtube....
Also, I think the problem on the east face of this block might be harder, I know it is for me.
There is some key heel hook beta to keep you from leaving bloody. I peeled off the jug my last time on it. I was just too pumped. Next time it will go.
I have not attempted any of the problems on the east face, so in terms of rating them I can't compare. This problem seemed to be the most sustained at least. The east face stuff seems more like one move wonders on painful holds :)
