This was originally sparsely bolted on lead by me and Hamad as an access route only but with repeated ascents and now some cleaning and rebolting and Theo putting in the top pitch it actually proven to be a fun mountain meander it consist of a scary traverse above the tree to the first chains (hint the traverse is better if you stay low) The next pitch follows the slab up through a water wash and the last pitch tops you out on the crest. IT can be done in one push with lots of drag but two pitches appears to be the norm bring some long slings to help reduce drag regardless. There are rappel points at each belay and you can rappel from the top to the ground if your using a 70 m rope but if not two rappels will get you down. Caution as there is still some loose rock in places park you car well away from the crag if your climbing this line.
