A unique climb to both the Hinterlands and Rumney, the black, crystalline rock feels a lot different than other climbs in the area. Start up a left leaning ramp past a bolt placed on a horizontal shelf. At the top of the ramp, climb up the black rock through a water trough. At the fourth bolt (crux), step left and continue up more crystalline rock. Above this, the angle and the difficulty both ease significantly to the anchors.


Located a couple routes to the left of the Cold Feet / Giant Man climbs, start just to the right of the diagonal crack on Chicken Parts.


Eight bolts to lowering rings.
