Description 

Just downhill from Chewbacca, you will find a good crack with a distinctive angle (dog leg) about halfway up. Climb up the left hand side of a small pillar and gain the crack above. Climb this through the awkward, wide, dog leg portion and to easier ground above. The climb ends at a tree with slings which is the descent for many of the climbs in this area.


Protection 

Double set of cams mostly in the hand/big hand sizes - stoppers aren't really needed.

Good route. Having a larger cam (#5 Camalot) makes it easier to get pro but it's not really necessary. Seemed to be about the same difficulty as Chewbaca.

Another way to identify this area is to look for an large dead log near the base of these routes.

The rap is about 28 meters - fine on a 60. Probably dodgy on a 50.
