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