A little sandy at the bottom, but the rock quality is superb from the 4th bolt on. Careful with a lighter belayer on the first crux (bolts 2-3).

I was wondering how hard this was. I saw it was a project last time I was there and would love to try it next time I'm there. Rad!

I have never been on it, but I am guessing it is somewhere around 12c. I would ask Ricky how hard he felt it was after he sent and called it 12c ;)

Hard bouldery start. Technical crimp section. Deadpoints. This route has a variety of styles and multiple cruxes. Feels adventurous and long. Don't expect to have anything left afterwards, but do it anyways

Gobstopper is a cool name, but this shoulda been called Doopity Doo, right? ;-)
