Climb up onto the ledge on the right side of the crag, clip the first bolt on the bulbous rock, and then climb up to the face above. Pull pockets and a couple of underclings until the last bolt; clip this, then head for the chains.

This route suffers a bit by sharing chains; the ending is a bit unnatural.


The second-from-right bolted line; located on the side of the crag facing the road.


5 bolts, chain anchors.

It's got its own set of anchors now and it feels much more natural.
