This route has perhaps more variety than others on this wall. Crimpy crux, some jugs, bomber gear placements, and some weird bouldery movement up high.


Right of Tips Ahoy (middle HB)


3 bolts, mid size cams.

Brilliant route...nice angle, nice crimps and interesting sequences. Can be wet up high.

Agree with Mike - this is an excellent route. Three bolts make up the business, after which the climbing over gear is relatively tame with the exception of the iron cross move to finish things up, and the gear is right at your feet when you pull that move.

Heads up for the big tree behind you when you pull the last hard move at the top!
