BETA PHOTO: the route looks like this... im looking straight u...


Very cool crux moves on a slightly underwhelming route.

Climb up a mossy slab, pull a mantle at the first bolt. Continue up and right on the slab until you get to the vertical bit. A surprisingly tricky/tough move gets you established on the steeper climbing where you get all good holds and it gets REALLY STEEP REALLY FAST! Hand traverse right across the roof with a swing of the legs and a throw of the hand you gain the anchors which are clipped from a jug.

The route can be wet.. so... yeah...


Left route on the far left part of the crag, separate from the main area.


6 bolts to lower off. I skipped one cause they were very close where it turns to a roof.
