This route will benefit from more traffic, it can be a bit dirty. Climb a small chimney and right facing corner to an overhang. Pass the overhang on the left and then step back right. Follow cracks to the top to reach the shuts.


This climb is located on a section of cliff above and to the right of Block Party and the cave to the right. Follow the faint trail to the right and locate a few fixed ropes to assist in the climb to reach this upper face. This climb is the first you will encounter as you reach this section of the cliff.


Standard Seneca rack, shuts.
