Anna (10 yrs) starting out on Sounding the Claxon....


Climb slightly overhanging rock using jugs, slopers, sidepulls, and some less positive holds. The crux is probably between bolts three and four; good footwork helps.

After bolt five the angle eases to slightly less than vertical. The chains are just before the overhanging rock above the route.


Walk along the base of The Matrix until an outside corner. The route is just after the corner and climbs the left side of the corner's arete. Constructed terraces start just after the route location and there is a large evergreen tree on the left when facing the terraces.


7 bolts to chain anchors. Anchors shared with route to left (Twelve Tasty Donuts).
