You'll want dry weather for this one. Both pitches feature smears and friction climbing cruxes. A bit of moss to contend with on upper P2. A fun route, but definitely not the lippy, edgy stone of the routes to the left.
Above the fixed rope "down step" on the approach ledges.
All bolts to chain anchors. A 2' sling is a good idea for the 4th bolt, where the route jogs to the left to a mantle over an overlap. Be careful of the grass ledge at the top of P1.

New Favorite climb in the Dacks! Aside from the bit of mossiness, which was easily avoided and the grassy topout to belay ledge, this climb is STELLAR.
You get a great slab start and a taste of the vertebrae to come on pitch one. Then a taste of the crimpfest on the routes next door and the awesome vertebrae of pitch two.
GO DO THIS ROUTE!

This route is incredible - bring a wire brush. It appears as though a 10'x4' mass of dirt and grass has fallen from the top of P1 uncovering some nice holds and eliminating what looks like what would have been a sketchy grass mantle to get to the chains. P2 is still mossy but enough key holds are clean that it climbs much much better than it looks. Very unique climb.
