BETA PHOTO: The corner of Plum Pudding.

Description 

This is an awesome layback climb up a right facing corner with finger sized gear. The climbing is fairly sustained, but a few small feet allow for rests and oportunities to place gear.

There is a fun corner to the right that you can TR from the anchors. That corner, PBR, checks in at around 5.10.


Location 

This is the obvious right facing corner on the right side of the cliff.

Rappel with 1 rope from 2 bolt anchor


Protection 

Protection to 0.5 camalot, with extras in the blue and yellow tcu size. There is a good 2 bolt anchor at the top.

The Cummins topo lists it as 5.10A, which I would agree it is harder, more sustained than Godzilla.

The upper half is the business with a 20' section of yellow/orange TCU or .3 & .4 camolots with limited feet. The last 15' eases off to the anchors.
