This is an easy multipitch route that you can do in 2 or 3 pitches depending on how much gear you bring and the length of your rope.
It follows up the obvious deep crack line in a sort of chimney. There are several great ledges to to rest on and set up as your belay station. This is a great route for beginners. It is a very easy route for experienced climber but is exciting and challenging for beginners. There is a great crack line for bomber placement the whole way up. The route also has a small amount of scrambling.
The route sees a small amount of attention and was not thoroughly cleaned, so expect lots of loose rocks.
The route is about 30m to the right of the descent gully. There is a small tree/bush growing out of the crack where the start is.
Route number 1 one the topo.
This is a trad route. I suggest using double ropes if you have them, if not then you will still be ok. Please use your own judgment as what to bring on trad route. I recommend a few slings and a couple of long slings and a 20ft cord. You wont need anything bigger the a size 3 cam. The size three was used on the horizontal crack at the first ledge for the anchor/belay station. You will also need a 2-3 size two cams.
