A great route. The crux is just after the first bolt, but stays hard to the top. A great steep route, if it were longer it would get 4 stars


This is the route at the back of the cave and the meets with cracked lip at the 4th bolt.


4 bolts and chains

The first clip might look intimidating, but unless you are really short it isn't bad. The crux is still down low, though, so you'll need an attentive belayer to keep you out of the dirt.

I know personally of at least two key holds that have broken over the year's (I'm one of those heavier climbers), which has increased the original difficulty rating of the route.
