  • Description 

    A bold two bolt lead or most people toprope from the chain anchors rappelling from Harry Daley. A challenging face climb on ru 10b territory, follow some larger ramps up to the first bolt, then smear and look carefully for the next few holds to the traversing crack, finish at the bolts. Could be TR with just one 60m rope but Harry Daley rap takes two ropes.


    Location 

    On Monday Morning Slab, the slab left of the finger crack that starts Harry Daley. Requires a 3rd class scramble up about 100 feet through various ledge systems, then two great routes with Harry Daley and Variation on a Theme.

    Two bolts

    The last time I was in the area this route had button head bolts and needs to be upgraded. Probably not something you would go up to specifically lead but just an FYI in case.
