Passed the crux, but still some tricky moves above...


Start from the ground (not the boulder behind), and climb the vertical face via some fingery moves up to better holds at the second bolt.

From these holds continue up the wall with a few more sustained moves until a rail is reached.

Once at the rail cruse up to the anchors.


Far right of the south face


5 bolts, double ring anchor

Strenuous, sharp, sequenced climbing leading to more tenuous moves to the rail. 10c if you start from the boulder, 5.11 if you start from the sand.

I thought it was 10c off the sand.
