Comments: Nothing is PG13 about the route itself... No loose rock, gear anywhere you want it, maybe easier than anything on GNS. PG13 rating may be due to historical dirtiness. As of a few weeks ago it was sparkling clean (and I scraped another few gallons of dirt and pine needles out of the crack to try to keep it that way), but due to its position in the trees and the low angle it looks like it will tend to collect more if people don't keep climbing it.

Comments: Maybe people are put off by its supposed offwidthness? At least you don't need any huge gear.. Up to #3 is sufficient.

Comments: We climbed it last Wednesday. That was fun, thanks for the cleaning!

First two pitches were awesome (we found the first one to be a bit more than "semi" strenuous). Third was also fun but a bit dirty (there's a wire brush at the base, maybe that was a hint...). We passed on the fourth because it was wet.

Can rap the route with one 70m rope. Watch out for rope eating cracks when going from p2 anchor to p1 anchor.

Small offset cams are useful for the start of p2, especially if you are inclined ... more >>

Comments: If one is unsure about the moves and/or gear before the first bolt, it is possible to cheat the start by scrambling in from climber's right to the ledge above the bolt.

Comments: Ah, I just figured the route changed because the route description for the 3 pillar pitches and the 11c rating in Nelson didn't make any sense to me.

Comments: For details on the Lower North Ridge variation and the "new" way up the Girth (rockfall has affected the route since the FA), check out Kevin Newell and Eric Wehrly's TR from 2007:

Comments: The bolt is missing its hanger. But if you're up for leading an R route anyway you might not care.
