The Gash

 

If  only the hang in the Gash was better..... Some folks have been trying  to build platforms under some of the more popular climbs. Any and all  help is greatly appreciated. There are two new platforms under Slice of  Death and Swamp Cooler! You now can stand and belay and don't have to  hang on ratty ropes to belay. It make the climbs in the zone much more  enjoyable. We'll see how the work holds up to winter. Between the above  mentioned two climbs is a new line listed below.
 

 Frigidaire 5.13b***

Just  right of Swamp Cooler and left of Slice of Death. This climb is wicked  and on some pretty solid stone. Climb from lower of two platforms. The  first move does pull a 5.10+ bulge so make sure first bolt is clipped.  Follow chimney feature about 40 feet before things start to heat up.  Side pull out left and onto bullet hard shield for another 4 bolts of  hard steep climbing. (The first several bolts of Frigidaire can be  climbed to reach the anchor of Slice of Death and pre-draw it or done as  a warm up.)
