The three one pitch climbs that are found on this slab very well protected by bolts and the odd cam . Ideal for those who prefer to stay away from the run out climbs, and get some experience with the rock and grades of the Reef.

This was a good route it was runout on loose rock to the first bolt but after that it was well protected and good rock. I did not see where to place the 4 inch cam. over all my wife and I enjoyed this climb. Sean and Kim 11/6/10
