Tim starting the crux sequence on Blinded by the L...


This route left us uninspired for two months due to it's short length and the other routes we were looking at doing. It turns out to be really fun climbing on overhanging rock with good holds. A perfect warm-up for harder routes if done a few times in a row.


Upper left end of The Griddle. Follows cracks and seams to a bit of wide crack. Don't let the wide crack deter you as you don't get into it.

This route is a great warm up climb. Take a couple of runs on this short, pumpy, jug fest and you're ready for the rest of your day!!

This one is quite fun and pumpy for a short route. Worth doing!

Short but quality with harder and steeper climbing that it appears from the ground. Two stars just for fun.

terrible crumbly rock at the very base, but other than that, a really enjoyable climb
