Description

Six sport routes, barely 1m apart, and all with 5-6 bolts to the anchor (two bolts, one hanger). Trivially simple to identify the six routes.

Grades: range from 6a to 7a+. The hardest parts are usually in the lower half, especially the first 2 bolts.

The routes are West facing, so under shade until mid-day.


CAUTION: This crag has not seen any climbing for the most part of the last 2-3 years due to bee hives under the roof, just 1-2 feet to the left of Route 1. The hive is currently dead/decadent, but do check before you decide to climb.

1. Unmistakable corner climb; a tree root is growing right inside the corner. The easiest of the routes. Graded f6a although the author felt it was harder

2. 6a+
3.

5.
6.



The routes were originally developed in 2013 by Allied Petzl team, and has perhaps seen some additions recently.
