Feeling out the moves on Rat Up a Drainpipe

Description 

This bay is located towards the western end of the area. The routes here are all affected by the tide so take this into consideration.

The rock is all good quality, but take care with some of the fixed belay protection as it has been there for a while.


Getting There 

Walk along the bottom of the crag and just as you pass a knife edge ridge look up and you'll see the climbing.

Start up the thin shallow cracks. You get some good small gear at the tops of these cracks.With the gear placed launch out on a lonely lead, since the gear will only protect the first 40 feet of climbing.Small crimps and shallow cracks lead up and over a small overlap then more crimping continues on up directly to the crux moves 6 feet below the niche. Its only 6 feet, but it has the potential of feeling longer than that......[more]   Browse More Classics in International
