Description 

Slabby, technical and thin.

Start up the slab on shallow depressions. With not much to hold onto work your way into the bottom of the crack, at this point just a hiar line seam with a slight off set. Work up the seam as it widens to fingers and hands. Pull easily onto the top of the block.

To descend wander over towards the main cliff line to the arete of the block and step/jump across the gap. Walk to your right or left to descend or downclimb the short corner to the base.

Location 

Walk up the gully from the Pinball Simulator area till you can see the cliff band at the top of the gully. Work to your left untill you see a large detached block that forms a corridor with the main cliff and a large pine tree to the side of the enterance to the corridor. The problem is on the face of the block in the corridor and climbs a slab to a seam/crack.

Protection 

Pad and spotter. You may also want a stick brush. With all the pine trees around the crack can get clogged with needles, it is a good idea to scramble around to the top and clean the crack out before starting up.
